"The Happy Wanderer" ("Der fröhliche Wanderer" or "Mein Vater war ein Wandersmann") is a popular song. The original text was written by Florenz Friedrich Sigismund (1788-1857). The present tune was composed by Friedrich-Wilhelm Möller shortly after World War II. The work is often mistaken for a German folk song, but it is actually an original composition. His sister Edith Möller conducted a small amateur children's and youth choir in Schaumburg County, Northern Germany, internationally named Obernkirchen Children's Choir, in Germany named Schaumburger Märchensänger. She adapted Sigismund's words for her choir.
This Intermediate arrangement is written in the band friendly key of Bb concert and has optional repeats.
Parts included are: Full Score, Vocal (Optional), Clarinet, Tenor Sax, Trumpet, Trombone, Piano / Accordion, Tuba, Acoustic Bass (Tuba Sub.) and Drum Set
Performance Time Approx. 1 minute 30 seconds with two repeats.
