Product details

These three British folksong settings are dedicated to the memory of Percy Grainger and follow his approach of passacaglia or variation when treating folksongs. The titles are 1. The Jolly Sailor, a boisterous portrait of the subject; 2. Lovely Joan, a slow romantic setting; 3. Lord Bateman, a virtuosic setting in multi-metrical form.
Originally for brass band, this folksong suite is a spectacular showpiece for brass and percussion.
