NEW British piece for every band

    Arr. Gavin Somerset

    A stunning hymn-like medley that takes you on a trip around the British Isles. Starting in Scotland with "Highland Cathedral" which continues to make appearances throughout, and then into "Amazing Grace" whilst "Danny Boy" (Londonderry Air)" flows underneath. Whilst "Danny Boy" continues to build, "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" is heard ringing over the top as the piece builds to its emotional climax. Afterwards, a quiet calm of all the pieces skilfully woven together softly flow whilst the tune to Parry's "Dear Lord & Father Of Mankind (Repton)" leaves us with a delicate, soft finish to the journey.

    Sale Price: £19.95

    Having had the pleasure of "previewing" the piece I'd highly recommend it, Gavin has done a fantastic simple, yet effective, arrangement of some beautiful melodies. It should feature high on all bands programmes!

    That was my thoughts about Danny Boy, surely there is another tune from Ireland?

    I know it's been recently associated with the England rugby union team, but Isn't "swing low sweet chariot" a negro spiritual?

    From the title of the thread I thought you were giving away freebie copies to every band, was disappointed when I read the message to find we had to pay :rolleyes:

    I quite agree, really enjoyed playing this piece. The melodies are beautifully woven together. I know they're old chestnuts but they've really been brought to life. Good work Gavin :clap:
