Story behind the song
This piece of music depicts the final journey of the last Pharaoh of Egypt - from his funeral procession to the sealing of the tomb. Starting off on a misty dawn over the Nile, the procession leaves the palace and heads towards the Valley of the Kings before entering the tomb. The music drops down as the priests perform the final rituals to ensure the transition of the spirit to the afterlife. The music builds dramatically as the tomb is closed up before building to a final crescendo as the last block is put in place, sealing the tomb for all eternity.
