About CD: Army of Piece
1856 - grade 3 - 5 minutes ;
The wind band of Groussbus (Luxembourg) celebrated its 160th anniversary in 2016. Started as a choir but later turned into a wind band. To celebrate this happy event Tim Kleren was asked to write a composition. It had to become a reflection of the modern age and yet of the history of the band. 160 years ago there was only one choir in the village and some singers could not get along with the others. They just founded a new choir. Today both bands are getting along again and to emphasize that musically the musicians are singing in the middle part of the composition.
