West Highlands Sojourn

By Robert Sheldon

Grade 3.5
Composed by Robert Sheldon. Concert Band. Command Series. Audio recording available separately (item CL.WFR104). Score and set of parts. Composed 1993. Duration 6 minutes, 14 seconds. Published by C.L. Barnhouse (CL.012-2513-00).

Inspired by this popular composer's journey through the western hill country of England and Wales, this delightful piece borrows from folk melodies he heard on a river near the Scottish border. The three contrasting sections of the piece make it equally suitable for concert or contest use and Sheldon's artful scoring makes this one of the nicest new pieces we have heard. Splendid Music!
