Here’s a very simple 3/4 march you may find interesting, “The Valley Train”, another tune from my fifth book. I should really have called it “The Dundas Valley Train”. That might’ve made the title a little more specific, a little more accurate, a little more meaningful – you know, the markers of good composition!
That aside, I live in a small town, Dundas, in close(ish) commuting distance to Toronto. Dundas will never get much bigger than it is since it was founded in a valley (part of the Niagara Escarpment) with geographic limits to growth. And, by the way, that’s a good thing from my point of view.
So more about this “valley train”: the railway tracks are built half way up the escarpment on a fairly notable grade (don’t ask me specifics on that). Throughout the day I can clearly see the train passing from my westward-looking “office” window. At 0300 h I can clearly hear the train climbing up the grade. So, a little tune for the valley train, my “two hours advance warning” wake-up call.
I hope you like the tune.
