This delicate Handel Aria is sensitively transcribed for the growing concert band by Leland Forsblad. An expressive introduction hints at the melody which is then beautifully presented throughout the arrangement. Low brass play subtle support rhythms throughout and the Allargando closing ends with quiet dignity and grace. There is plenty of interpretive space for you to vary tempo and dynamics, making this an enjoyable work to conduct as well as a delight to listen to. (Grade 2).
