The Far North Land composed by Greg Bartholomew. For string orchestra. Level 3-4. Score only. Duration 3 minutes. Published by Imagine Music - Digital (IZ.OMS122-S).
My father enjoyed singing, particularly when the family went on road trips. One of our favorite songs that he sang was "The Far North Land." Several years ago, my sister recorded our father singing this song for use on the soundtrack of one of her movies.Years later I transcribed the song from that recording and used it as the foundation for this piece. My aunts tell me they recall my father singing this song when he was a boy growing up in Minnesota, and that they referred to it as "Fletch's song." It was only while working on this piece that I discovered that Duncan, ClearWater and Bear Skin are actual lakes in the border lakes region where Minnesota meets Canada. The original arrangement, for string quartet, was premiered by the Odeon Quartet on October 21, 2003, at Seattle's Town Hall. -Greg Bartholomew.
