Welcome to Day Three of BATTALIA WEEK on IPR's Kids Commute!
This week, we're listening to German composer Heinrich Biber's 1673 compassionate musical representation of a battle. We say, "compassionate," because Biber musically describes the hearts and minds of the soldiers as they prepare for war.
Today's music is no exception - we follow the soldiers' feet with a fuzzy bass (a sound created by weaving paper through the strings) and their hearts with the violin.
