Program Notes Parade of the Wooden Warriors is a three minute piece aimed at school and community wind ensembles. It describes the advance and retreat of an imaginary army in ancient times. The composer attempted to give the music the flavor of a Renaissance dance with the main melody in the Dorian mode and the harmony moving largely in consecutive fifths.
