Product Description

Fantasy On An Early American Marching Tu Composed by Robert Sheldon. For Concert Band. Published by Alfred Publishing Co Inc. (Catalog # 29462, UPC: 038081308807)

** Stanton's Staff Selection - 2008 **
Keys: Eb, Ab - Meters: 2/4, 3/4, 4/4
Rhythms: dotted rhythms, various 8th & 16th note patterns, entering on the 'and' of the beat
Teaching Concepts: articulation, tempo changes, melodic variation, dynamics, scale patterns

Here is a fantastic piece based on the traditional fife and drum tune The Girl I Left Behind Me.  Popular during the French and Indian War and the American Revolution, this familiar tune provides the source material for the other melodies in the piece.  Opening in a straightforward setting, moving to a lyrical B-section (with trumpet solo), and finishing with a climactic overlapping of themes similar to the writing of Gustav Holst, this work is sure to be a winner for concert and adjudication programming.
