Valhalla as Finale

valhallaThe last part of the Journey to Valhalla Suite is of course, Valhalla.  Valhalla in Norse myth is the palatial estate of the gods.  My music for this climax to the JTVS had to convey a sense of majesty.  Of course, there’s no outdoing Wagner’s Entrance of the God’s into Valhalla on the subject, but my idea was to do something similar within the context of the suite.  I took great pains to keep a certain continuity going, certain themes are repeated from the previous songs, but with Wagner in mind, I wanted to give Valhalla a certain symphonic sound. If you like a little classical music alongside your prog-rock as I do, you should enjoy this piece of music.
