This piece is one I wrote several years ago as I was asked to play piano on a program honoring the Mormon Pioneers. It is for medium - advanced to advanced piano and is reminiscent of themes from epic - scale movie soundtracks such as "Dances With Wolves" by John Barry. (I may even try to have this orchestrated at some point.) At the very end, there is a little snippet from "Come, Come, Ye Saints."
