"Jericho" is an exciting fanfare for young bands. From a larger suite for band called "Walls," it tells the story of the fall of the ancient city. We hear the sound of the rams' horns that heralded the collapse of the city's defenses and the marching of the army as it circumnavigates the town. The music ends while we are still listening to those otherworldly sounds, the miracle and strength of Joshua, not the sounds of battle.
