    The Mariner’s Tale by Stephen Chin (Advanced String Orchestra)

    The piece of music is a shorter version of a larger work originally composed for a massed orchestra of string instruments. The inspiration behind this composition stems from the famous poem, "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner", by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. The poem tells the harrowing tale of a ship's crew who are doomed to suffer after killing an albatross, with only the mariner - the person who committed the act of killing - surviving to tell the tale. The music captures the sentiment of sorrow and the possibility of redemption that runs through the poem. In the faster section of the piece, the music depicts the ship as it battles against the relentless and merciless waves of the sea.
