Composed and Arranged by Martin Behnke

Epictetus was a first-century Greek slave turned philosopher who was responsible for writings that still hold plenty of basic truth for us in today’s chaotic world.  This tune was inspired by one of my favorite of his sayings - a deceptively simple set of words that conveys a profound thought…

First, say to your-self what you would be... 
and then, do what you have to do.

In this medium samba that features the melody in unison with trumpets on flugels, you’ll find something like the full exposition of a four-part fugue leading into a full-blown shout chorus.  But don’t be intimidated - it’s still a lot of fun!
