    When Angels Weep is one of my personal band arrangements of all time. My band played this at the 2009 Tumon Bay Music Festival in Guam, USA and won a gold award. This piece is not challenging; the piece is just difficult for beginners. Overall, I loved it. Great job...

    to the composer, David Shaffer. (:

    This is a very beautiful and very expressive song. The notes are not difficult, but there are a lot of long tones and intonation is very important. I highly reccomend This piece.
