Welcome to Day Two of BATTALIA WEEK on IPR's Kids Commute!

This week, we're listening to Heinrich Biber's  compassionate (and sometimes funny) musical interpretation of a battle.

Today, we'll hear two short pieces. The first, "The Profligate Society of Common Humor," features a bunch of nationalistic songs crashing into each other, followed by the, "Presto," with excited soldiers checking their pocket watches,  waiting for the battle to start.
