Sheet Music: Score
Symphonic Suite No.1 : Just Another Medieval Tale / composed by Mark John McEncroe ; orchestrated by Mark J. Saliba.
by Mark McEncroe (2014)
Symphonic Suite No.1 "Just another Medieval Tale" is part 1 of a two-part story told through seven movements with a medieval feel.
Although set in the middle ages the story draws parallels with the modern day, because human nature seems incapable of change. Greed and self-interest prevail over all else. So we remain chained to similar outcomes irrespective of the age the story unfolds in.

A note from the composer: ‘Even though the story is set in medieval times, the idea behind this two volume work is that human nature does not seem to change much and as such, the same outcomes seem to keep reoccurring’.
