Every year, bands up and down the country perform joint concerts with choirs around the UK & across the globe. Joint items between the two ensembles are wonderful viewing (& listening) for the audience and can work as a terrific finale. Now, with the release of this arrangement, bands and choir* can join together and perform this wonderful work. Featuring a Baroque fanfare to open and a fugue towards the end, this is a simply stunning way for band and voices to be brought together. The arrangement also features an optional cut which allows the work to be performed without a choir. However, this arrangement invites the band to sing the melody in 4 part harmony, giving a fantastic new dimension to your bands versatility. Full choir parts & a piano part (for choir rehearsal purposes) are included with this publication. This really is a fantastic item that can make the hairs on your neck rise.
