Kids Commute - Battalia Week! Wednesday

American troops marching at the Battle of Bunker Hill

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.
