The Warriors is an original work (containing no folk themes of any kind) scored for symphony orchestra of enormous proportions.
The composition’s title is explained in Grainger’s lengthy program note, a portion of which is quoted here:
...the ghosts of male and female warrior types of all times and places are spirited together for an orgy of war-like dances, processions and merry-makings broken, or accompanied, by amorous interludes, their frolics tinged with just that faint suspicion of wistfulness all holiday gladness wears...arm in arm in a united show of gay and innocent pride and animal spirits, fierce and exultant.
