The Four
Saxophones of
the Apocalypse
The End of the World for

Saxophone Quartet
First Performance October 6, 2008, by Amanda Martin, Mandee Osterloh, Kristen Trimmell, and Maggie Gann, at Drury University,
Springfield, Missouri.

Then I watched while the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. I heard one of the four living creatures say with a
voice like thunder, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a white horse. The rider on the horse held a bow, and he
was given a crown, and he rode out, determined to win the victory.

When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” Then another horse came out, a
red one. Its rider was given power to take away peace from the earth and to make people kill each other, and he was given
a big sword.

When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a
black horse, and its rider held a pair of scales in his hand. Then I heard something that sounded like a voice coming from
the middle of the four living creatures. The voice said, “A quart of wheat for a day’s pay, and three quarts of barley for a
day’s pay, and do not damage the olive oil and wine!”

When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there
before me was a pale horse. Its rider was named death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given
power over a fourth of the earth to kill people by war, by starvation, by disease, and by the wild animals of the earth.
