English. Various.

In four contrasting traditional themes, Douglas Wagner has captured the essence in his Folk Songs from the British Isles. Including "A-Rovin'," "Early One Morning," "Barbara Allen" and "The Lincolnshire Poacher," the variety of these cherished melodies flow from the fanfare-like introduction to emotionally charged-lilting charm. Solidly scored for contemporary concert band in a most musical fashion, this is sure to be a frequent selection for contest, festival, and band concerts. (4:00).

  • July 02, 2011 Folk Songs from the British Isles

    As an old brass player from the UK, I introduced this piece to a small local Concert Band, mostly retired but with a good number of 'young players'. It was an instant hit with the Band. They enjoyed the lively ,lilting tempi,and most recognised the tunes if not personally...

    ,as something heard at home. The challenges initially were in tempo changes, the range played was consistently met, and I believe caused some players to practice more and ask for help. We have since started playing Vaughn Williams's"English Folk Song Suite" with more verve and snjoyment. I would recommend 'Folk Songs' to any Concert Band,as well written with interstingparts, and Solo sections, My only complaint is that it finishes too early!
