Sacred Square (theme)
"Sacred Square" is a resolute theme in C minor and 4/4. It begins with a country-styled banjo intro. The melody begins with a whistle-like flute. Its phrases are long, with its long notes lasting near two bars each. The beginning of the first phrase starts with a rising fourth similar to "Green Greens", but quickly shifts to E-flat major. The second phrase mirrors it and returns to C minor through subdominant, an octave below the original. The melody repeats from this new pitch, but the first phrase is cut short by a bar, causing structural irregularity. Continuing is a clarinet's solo, which has similar phrases, now with a tendency to end on an elevated note. The brass brings down the melody lower, where it gains a warmer timbre. The bar skip is repeated here. Then, the melody gains march-like properties, and descending from a G, it returns to its tonic.
The banjo solo returns once more. The first section repeats in a lower register, with additional responses from previous lead instruments, and stronger percussion. The melody now rises with the subsequent iteration. Nearing the equivalent of the second section, a less clearly defined whistle blows. The final iteration is played by a violin, which once again ends in a descending passage. The track loops from there.
