Title: Children's March Over The Hills And Far
Voicing/Format: Concert Band
Publisher: Southern Music Co Tx
Composer: Grainger, Percy
Arranger: Rogers, R Mark
Catalog #: 03778018
Grade: 5 Omea 2014 Hs Aa
Percy Grainger's extraordinary scoring skills permeate this classic, carefree work for symphonic band. Children's March: Over the Hills and Far Away, origin ally a piano solo, was orchestrated by the composer while he was a member of t he U.S. Coast Guard Artillery Band. It includes two unusual scoring elements f or the time - a prominent part for piano (cued in the winds), and brief four-p art vocal interludes to be sung by members of the band (or a small chorus ad l ib). Grainger believed that the greatest expressivity could be found in the lo wer instruments of the band (particularly the lower woodwinds), and Children's March includes a liberal and highly specialized use of the bassoons, English horn, bass clarinet and low saxophones. The march was first performed by the r enowned Goldman Band
