    The Armed Man Sees The Light By Stephen Chin

    In this musical composition, festival orchestras consisting of musicians of varying levels of expertise can come together and showcase their talents. The piece is composed for four-string orchestras and un-tuned percussion and draws inspiration from the mediaeval tune "L'Homme Arme", which tells the tale of a warrior brandishing his sword. The middle section of the composition features a beautiful violin solo, where the warrior, now quiet and contemplative, reflects on his experiences on the battlefield. The final section is based on the South African song "Simbayama" and is a joyous celebration of the warrior walking towards peace and liberty, leaving behind the darkness of war.

    Chin, Haydn Symphony No.60 1st Movement
    This arrangement for strings is faithful to the original work with the added features of sharing the melodic lines, a slight editing of a few bars of the bass part, a violin 3 part and a keyboard realization. It is also an excellent way to develop Classical style spiccato in more advanced players.
