In Stock. This beautiful Scottish folk song opens with unaccompanied trombone. The melody then flows through the ensemble including a section of tune for the tuba player. The arrangement climaxes to a full ensemble rendition before it fades away, ending how it began- quietly, almost from a distance.
This was originally a nine movement suite to which eight movements have been selected and arranged here. The movements are short and tuneful with the trumpet and remaining voices passing melodic material between them. The most famous movement is Rondeau - The Prince of Denmark's March which is also known as Trumpet Voluntary. This is a version of this piece arranged in B-flat concert. It facilitates performance on B-flat trumpet rather than piccolo which makes this popular piece accessible to more quintets. For the original key in D please order BQ25209.
This work contains three movements (Marianne s'en va-t-au moulin', She's like the Swallow and J'entends le moulin) based on traditional Canadian folk songs. Morley Calvert (1928-1991) originally wrote this suite for brass band and is published by the Salvation Army. Around the same time he also did a version for concert band, which was never published. It was this concert band version which has been used as the basis for this arrangement for brass quintet and optional percussion. This work is similar in style and diffculty to his famous Suite from the Monteregian Hills
