Lush harmonizations and mellifluous melodies characterize this gorgeous Irish ballad-style piece by Warren Barker. The warm introduction gives way to the first statement of the lilting melody by a solo clarinet. After adding the rest of the clarinet section, the trumpets take over the theme, leading to a soaring statement by the entire ensemble. Eventually, the stirring theme modulates and unfolds into an expansive climax. This lyrical showcase will make a beautiful impression on your band as well as your audience!
