THE FIRST & THE LAST!
A continuation of Millennium, this work depicts the final confrontation between Good and Evil. It begins with a viral fragment. Like a disease, the motif twists and multiplies in and around the ensemble, ending irresolute. It folds to In the Hollow of the Heart... bittersweet. In the Battle at Meggido... we experience the triumphal theme of Good pitted against the viral theme of the Dark.
All 5 movements from Millennium and The First & The Last are interchangeable and offer many choices to the Conductor. WAY of the WARRIOR is its WPIM Counterpart.
