||This is the sequel tone poem to Patmos. It is a musical warning to the church at Pergamum for allowing heresy to contaminate the teachings of St. Paul. A unison Kyrie is sung by the band as the bassoon keeps the "A theme" alive in the background. Meter changes, full percussion scoring, and powerful themes make this an exciting number. Slightly more difficult than Patmos, but well suited for college and top high school bands.
