Product details

Dedicated to the memory of Percy Grainger, all my folksong suites use folk-songs in a variation or passacaglia-like form. The original folksongs come from Great Britain. The titles of the 3rd Suite are: 1. Droylsden Wakes - a simple verse and chorus setting with rich romantic harmonies; 2. Lord Bateman - a fast-moving and virtuosic multi-metre setting; 3. Three Ships & Lisbon - a sound-picture of a group of troubadours approaching a coastal town, the Three Ships melody eventually overwhelming their own tunes.

Published by: Australian Music Centre — 1 set of 39 performance parts (196p. -- A4 (portrait))

Difficulty: Advanced — wide range for most instruments, multi-metre 2nd mvt.
