Looking for a challenge for your second year band?  The elongated phrasing, expressiveness, 2-beat triplet rhythms, and mixed meters will push your students to the next level.  Michael Sweeney has done a masterful job of arranging this gorgeous movement from Percy Grainger's Lincolnshire Posy for young bands.  Besides changing the key from Db to the more accessible Bb and rewriting the 3/2 measures to combinations of 4/4 and 2/4, Sweeney has kept the original phrasing, dynamics, tonal colors, and character of the original.  Introduce your students to classic band repertoire and the music of Percy Grainger with this fabulous arrangement!
