No. 23 of Grainger's British Folk Music settings, Molly on the Shore is a rollicking treatment of a popular Irish Reel. It scampers and bounces its way through a succession of sonorous climaxes, accumulating an amazing collection of memorable counter themes as it goes along, before subsiding in a delicately scored coda that ends with a characteristic Grainger bang. An acclaimed classic, we are proud to offer this engraved and corrected edition of Molly on the Shore with a complete full score. Duration: 4' Key: Ab Ranges: Solo Cornet - C; Cornet - G; Horn - Ab; Trombone - Ab.

    Many of Percy Aldrige Grainger's works contain the contrary of this piece. Molly on the Shore is an incredible, up beat piece of music that your clarinet players, particularly your first chair clarinet player, will thank you for. This Grainger work also presents the main motive in many of...

    the other instrumentation throughout the ensemble. I would definitely recommend this piece to any Wind Ensemble.

    A very fun and fast-paced Irish tune, one always has to watch his or her musicality, intonation, and articulation. This is a song I have fallen in love with, and our clarinet section even jigs to it in sectionals!
