Here begins The Song of Fouri
And by the light of the heavens, four champions shall appear.
The FIRST shall be a Dragon Rider, proven in the field of battle.
The SECOND shall be a Centaur Leader, defender of his land.
The THIRD shall have the Gift of Flight, and by his accord was found.
The FOURTH shall be an Elvin Mage, guardian of the peoples trust.
Fate has willed them to find each other, and has bound them together. And only when these champions have become as one, Shall the bringers of evil and darkness be defeated. Morgan Wagnon, 8th grade band student (2003) The music, as inspired by this short narrative, offers a glimpse into the magical world of fantasy and adventure and the epic struggle between good and evil therein. The Song of Fouri is a programmatic grade 1 piece that will thrill your students and can accommodate any performance situation.
