English Folk Song / arr. for piano by Percy Grainger / ed. and orch. Brant Karrick
Alfred Concert Band
4 (Medium Advanced)
Grainger's first piano arrangement of this English morris dance tune was completed in 1918 as a birthday gift for his mother. It became extremely popular and was his greatest commercial and financial success. Even this simple tune displays his genius with harmony, counterpoint, and color, and is an excellent way to introduce your students to the music of Percy Grainger!
