Lincolnshire Posy by Percy Aldridge Grainger (1882-1961). For Concert Band. Grade 5. Score. Duration 15:07. Published by LudwigMasters Publications (LG.10105250).
One of the absolute gems in the entire worldwide repertoire for wind bands, Lincolnshire Posy remains at the pinnacle for all bands who believe themselves ready to prove their artistic worth. Along with Percy Grainger's wonderful material, the added bonus of the explicit editing and notes from the definitive interpreter of the work, Dr. Frederick Fennell, makes this a must have for performance and for study. The score, available separately (as are all Ludwig Music scores), contains extensive notes and explicit markings. It is this work that has literally been responsible for inspiring thousands of aspiring musicians to become directors of bands, orchestras, and choruses, thus fostering a lifetime of love of and respect for music. Ludwig Music is extremely proud to play a major part, by making this edition available, in keeping this very important piece of music at the forefront of musicians and audiences around the world.
