Battle Quest
Mike Forbes

Battle Quest
Battle Quest has a feeling of a video game or movie soundtrack, with dynamic, forceful themes. However, it is still very playable for beginning string groups. Mike Forbes has penned a piece that will make your groups sound much more musically mature than their experience.
