I became acquainted with the Redwall books around the same time I became acquainted with this piece of music. Perhaps it is for this reason alone or perhaps there is something else at work in this strange head of mine, but the two always remind me of each other. I used to read Redwall while listening to "Prince Igor" all the time. Now that I'm rereading the book I find myself craving this piece. It's a long one, but I hope you'll listen to it and enjoy it as much as I do.
