I have tried to merge two musical topics: Mongolian folk song Urtyn duu (meaning a long song) and Western four-voice music, imagining Chingis Khan, conqueror of the great Eurasian continent. The Mongolian folk song is "Urtyn duu Guuji Nan Aga" (piccolo melody in the middle section) and the rhythm of the accompanying snare drum is from a song that depicts conquest and invasion.
