Processional! for C Trumpet (and Sleigh Bells) and Boy Soprano (and Bodhrán) by Eric Lindsay is a beautiful set of three fanfares written by Eric Lindsay to accompany Caleb Weintraub’s “Prelude To A Beatdown” (2010) art installation. These fanfares are performed by a trumpeter who will also play Sleigh Bells and a Boy Soprano who will also play Bodhraán (or equivalent frame drum played with beater).

hvis du vil
annen manns liv eller land. Ingen lam
for lat ulv.
Ingen kamp er vunnet i sengen
if you want
another man’s life or land. No lamb
for the lazy wolf.
No battle’s won in bed.
