You can play it with any virtually any combination of instruments:symphonic band, clarinet choir, brass ensemble, brass band, solos, duets andtrios - almost anything!
Thisarrangement is in six independent parts each transposed into a variety of keys.For the most satisfying sound you’ll need to get a good balance between eachpart possibly with an emphasis on the melodic line.
