******************************

“Grand Procession” was composed by Mr. Stolyarov in 2001 and 2002. It was Mr. Stolyarov’s first attempt at a multi-instrumental composition. Since MIDI sequencers were not available to him then, Mr. Stolyarov had to play each track by hand and attempt to align it with the played-back recording of all the other tracks. The present version is remastered using the SynthFont 2 software, with the Evanescence 2 and GMR Basico 1.1 instrument packs.

This composition is written for piano, flute, organ, harpsichord, and a string section. As the name suggests, it is meant to evoke images of a triumphal procession – of a civilian rather than military nature (since most of the instruments involved would not be available to a military band or orchestra).
