This piece is made to compliment The Kingdom. Unlike Kingdom, however, the focus was not on a steady tempo, but on a steady piece- effective transitions in a long work.
I don't think another piece has brought me as much of a headache as this one... constant tech issues, mixing difficulties, and more made this perhaps one of my most irksome works. However, I somehow managed to finish this at a respectable length.
The ending of the piece isn't exactly what it was supposed to be... for some reason, Finale didn't like the huge amount of noise and cut out some voices no matter how many ways I exported it and worked with it.
Here are the lyrics: And to the king of mighty lands now rule, his reign shall last for all of time.
It was a dark day full of terror, none did think it would ever come, but in the shadows he was lurking, our end of days now had come.
We live in peace now and forever, not a fear known, the war is now long over, let peace be known.
Let peace be known.
