Eighth Note Publications Flexible Band/String Series provides ultimate flexibility for ensembles with incomplete instrumentation or odd combinations. These pieces are playable by as few as 5 woodwind, brass or string players with or without percussion. This creates the opportunity for a mixed quintet to perform these titles but also allows for performance for 10-15 players up to full a band/orchestra with parts doubling. Great for music camps, contest use or any band room that has non-standard instrumentation.

This beautiful folk song has been used as the melody for several popular hymns including I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say, O Sing a Song of Bethlehem, I Feel the Winds of God Today, and several others. It is a beautiful work that seems to float along both melodically and harmonically. This arrangement is opened by a solo voice with a sense of a lone player on the top of a hill surrounded by mist. The tune is then played in full quartet voicing leading to other variations and re-scorings. It ends as it began, very peacefully and reflectively.
