It begins with a letter to a loved one at home. A soldier writing from the field to the one she left behind. It speaks of the pride she feels defending her lands and country from the evil that threatens them, but also of the sadness of knowing she may never see home again.
Rich, orchestral strains with a mournful French Horn melody that is taken up by a solo violin. This piece has moods ranging from melancholy to martial to reflective.
