Song For A Lost Kingdom is a song composed for piano, strings quartet and soprano, in the key of A minor and with a time signature of 6/8.
Based on the rondo form, every repetition brings a different variation and more complexity into the piece until its very end. Liberties were taken with regards to rules of composition that would have been present in the period in which the piece is originally composed in the book to allow for a more interesting texture and modern sound.
