This re-imagining of the traditional classic is in 3 distinct sections:
- Section 1 is slow and gentle, starting with a duet between the Trombones, followed by a flowing melody on the Horns with a Trumpet counter-melody.
- Section 2 is a fast rock section, with a lively version of the tune, and a huge “shout chorus” section.
- Section 3 returns to a more gentle rolling version of the tune for the Trombone section, before finishing with the Horns.
This arrangement is written for a fairly standard school brass ensemble, and includes parts for the following instruments:
- Trumpet 1
- Trumpet 2
- Trumpet 3
- F Horn 1
- F Horn 2
- Trombone 1
- Trombone 2
- Bass Trombone
The principal parts (Tpt 1, Tbne 1 Horn 1) have a wide range, and the rest of the parts are kept within a manageable range.
