A Mighty Fortress
Lantz Berets

“A Mighty Fortress” uses both Bach’s familiar version, along with Martin Luther’s more rhythmic original tune. The piece opens with an ethereal background, chiming of church bells and a subdued brass fanfare, foretelling the dawn of a new era. Luther’s text addresses the idea of warfare in the spiritual realms, and “A Mighty Fortress” depicts battle lines drawn, armed forces gathering, and finally the culminating conflict and triumphant fourth statement. The piece ends with a jubilant reprise of the opening brass fanfare. $95.00

Crusader March
Lantz Berets

Written for the Evergreen Christian School Crusader Band, this march features an optional, more difficult obbligato to challenge ambitious clarinetists and flutists. It also uses two percussion parts, one with rolls and the other without, but the parts are otherwise identical. This allows percussionists to learn the snare drum sticking, then drop in the rebound to create rolls. Your band will love this simple but stirring march! $45.00
