Along an English Countryside composed by Richard L. Saucedo. For Concert Band (Score & Parts). MusicWorks Grade 5. Grade 5. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.4003201).
Composed in 12/8 and entirely in one energetic tempo, this masterful work is a musical tribute to the late Sir Malcolm Arnold, one of the most notable English composers of our time. The opening section features a variety of short solo statements of the theme, which then leads to well-timed and impressive declarations from the entire ensemble. Within in the confines of this brief yet impressive work, Richard manages to skillfully capture feelings of both seriousness and playfulness. Along an English Countryside is wonderful as a program opener for festival or contest. Dur: 2:55.
