Melius Una – “Better Together” / “Better As One”

Commissioned by the Event Organisers and composed by Jonathan Kirby, Melius Una will be the theme song for the Euro Taiko Expo. It will be played as the finale of the Saturday night concert, and by taiko players from all over Europe during the Sunday Expo. It’s open to everyone!

The composition is presented here in “pedagogic” form, designed to help taiko players learn the piece.

In Case You Are Wondering…

Melius Una is Latin. It’s a song for the Euro Taiko Expo, so it seemed appropriate to give it a name in a European language. OK, so the Romans didn’t ever conquer Germany, Denmark, Sweden or a few other European countries, but at least Latin isn’t English!!
