Warren Zevon Wiki

"Roland Chorale" is an instrumental piece from Warren Zevon's 1993 album, Learning to Flinch.

About the Song[]

"Roland Chorale" was a new song (along with "Worrier King" and "The Indifference of Heaven") released on the live album Learning to Flinch. "Roland Chorale" is played directly preceding "Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner", and seems to be a mood setting prelude for that song. The song has a light mysterious beat, probably meant to illustrate Roland's undead status and his quest for justice and revenge. The "Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner" track also lasted over four minutes long on Learning to Flinch, containing similar eerie instrumentation to "Roland Chorale".
