Sons of Kings was written over 8 months from the winter of 2014 to the spring of 2015 as a graduation project for my music composition degree at Carleton University. Under the direction of Dr. James Wright I think I achieved a great result. Technically, the project was only the score, but I decided to throw together an audio version as well so those who couldn't read sheet music easily could hear it (ie. my parents).
Sons of Kings tells the story of Homer's Iliad, and attempts to accompany the story in the best way it can. The 24 books of the Iliad are broken down and split among the movements. I hope you enjoy it whether you've read the Iliad or not!
