    Despite this being an absolute English classic, there are several things that are misleading about the arrangement: 1) It would have been good to have the option of including a harp/piano part, as the original, as I believe it loses a lot of character with its absence. 2) The...

    arrangement is really quite difficult to play in terms of tuning and balance - the opening melody, starting on a high G in the flutes/piccolo (ouch) and the middle section where the counter-melody engulfs the second tune are just a couple of examples. If you're in a hurry to perform this particular arrangement, go ahead, there aren't many more options, but if you want the real deal, a proper orchestral transcription will need to be created.
