Hall of the Mountain King


Ah, the fugue and pizzicato
hearken to the flute and strings
Grieg's 'Peer Gynt' is echoing
in the Hall of the Mountain King.

Fill your heart with the great Vivaldi
Concerto in C for trumpet and strings,
listen to Sibelius...FINLANDIA, and
Schumann's romantic symphonies.

Call for music from over the sea
and you will find peace and tranquility,
beautiful sopranos singing for you,
soothing your mind with sweet melody.

Oh the choirs of gentle voices
singing their madrigals of spring.
and the fugue and pizzicato
in the Hall of the Mountain King.
