"Durin's Dance" is the first of a projected trilogy of short pieces focused on the Dwarve's culture as seen in J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. After a brief slow introduction, the piece takes on the rhythm of a tarantella. The initial melody in the bass recorder is actually based (rhythmically) on the words to a long poem in Tolkien's book about Durin, the Father of the Dwarves, which begins "The world was young, the grass was green…" etc. In this piece I've attempted to create a sparse and somewhat earthy rhythmic feeling, such as the Dwarves may have enjoyed in dances in their halls beneath The Mountain. The style is reminiscent of early music as well as folk music (it might be dwarve's folk tunes) so I've listed it under each.
