Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar was a Castilian nobleman and military leader in medieval Spain. The Moors called him El Cid, which meant the Lord.

Written for middle school band director, my friend and fellow contributing composer Wally Hunt, El Cid is a fun and exciting latin-style percussion solo.  The mallet parts are more challenging overall than the battery and auxiliary percussion parts.  The Xylophone 1 part in particular is written for someone has had an introduction to 4-mallet work with some simple block chord patterns.
