|American Folk Rhapsody, No. 1|
Click on the image above to see a larger version.|
This medley of four American folk songs was written expressly for the technical ability of the average Class B high school band, with the idea in mind that it be of sufficient musical and program interest for the more advanced high school, college, university, and professional organizations. The material used consists of "My Little Mohee", "Shantyman's Life", "Sourwood Mountai," and "Sweet Betsy from Pike" -- all excellent songs of Ameican folk-lore.
Technical Notes: A few suggestions for performance: The cornet solos may be played by more than one solo cornet if the single instrument does not penetrate. If the flute countermelodies become too prominent they should be reduced to one flute. The rhythm at letter L should not be permitted to become sluggish, especially in the lower voices. Bands with large instrumentation may find a reduction of basses necessary at this pont. Melodies should be kept prominent at all times. Doublings in harmony parts placed in the score for practical purposes, may tend to overshadow these melodies, and must be subdued, according to dynamic marks.
Estimated Performance Time: 6:15
