A true wind band classic is presented here with a new recording and transcription as a refresher for experienced band directors and as an introduction to new band directors. It was made famous by Fredrick Fennell in his recordings with the Cleveland Winds, along with countless other fantastic performances and recordings over the years. Originally written for organ, this transcription stays very true to the original intent. One can practically hear the registration changes of the organ when playing this well-written standard in the wind band repertoire.
