Legends of Glory features a majestic theme that weaves through contrasting sections in the key of E minor. As ancient voices recall tales of forgotten glory, a sacred moment of reflection gives way to a stormy battle in the cello and bass sections, building to a victorious key change to A minor. With just a little third position in first violin, it's an accessible and exciting work for developing players!

Ventus is the Latin word for "wind," and this work depicts the beauty and fury of the wind through both E minor and G Major tonalities. Bow articulations range from powerful staccato and lyrical legato to energetic spiccato in the coda section. Dissonance is featured throughout to create a sense of tension and resolution. This triumphant-sounding piece is very approachable and fun to play, with all parts given meaningful contributions throughout.

This original work uses "blue" notes, jazzy riffs, and an ostinato bass line (lower strings) to build to a nice full sound.  A conductors' favorite, newly revised for 2015.

Windchasers depicts the soaring flight of starling flocks twisting in the winds of a growing storm. As relentless staccato rhythms drive the melody forward, the whirlwind dies down for some pizzicato "rain" before the original theme rises again. This work helps reinforce low one and low two finger patterns, and half-position (bass) in the key of D minor, while staying in first position.

You can almost hear the choir in the background as you listen to the sentimentally beautiful Mountain Hymn. The piece is dedicated to the composer's two nieces who came from Mexico to be baptized at a small church near her home in the Ecuadorian highlands. This work will give young musicians practice with lyrical playing and expressive dynamics, all within a piece in D major that falls very easily on young musicians' fingers.

Take a trip back to Ancient Greece with this fun and energetic work! Students will encounter two-note to six-note slurs, pizzicato, staccato and legato bowings, rhythms in 3/4 time, and dynamic contrast, along with an emphasis on playing octaves. The powerful melody is carefully woven throughout all parts while the accompaniment reinforces anchoring the first finger for better intonation.

In this modern twist on Mendelssohn's epic Hebrides Overture, low strings get to dig into energetic accented bass lines as two prominent themes weave through the orchestra. This arrangement is very playable in first position with a few simple accidentals. Every section of the orchestra is featured using the same melodic echoes that inspired Mendelssohn almost two centuries ago. Includes optional drum set.

Christmas in the Renaissance uses three songs originating during the Renaissance: Riu, Riu, Chiu; Dadme Albricias Hijos d’Eva and Ding, Dong Merrily on High. All three songs began their lives as dances, so the music should be light and energetic. The percussion part adds to the character of the music.

Firmly rooted in the standard violin repertoire, Symphonie Espagnole is a brilliant work that showcases the violin's lyrical beauty and technical virtuosity with a Spanish style. After keeping the opening solo passage, the powerful melodies are then passed throughout the orchestra. The first movement is arranged here for string orchestra, shortened and simplified for playability. However, Lalo's original fiery masterpiece comes through clearly. The optional timpani part is highly recommended to achieve the most authentic sound.

This wild piece calls for violins and violas to use a one-finger glissando creating a very eerie effect. Cellos will get to strum three-note chords with their thumb while canonic passages make your group work together as never before. Wicked!

Opening with a catchy theme, this work explores countermelodies as well as recurrences of the theme. Syncopated rhythms are common and are aided by running eighth notes that help subdivide the pattern. It's a powerful, technically challenging work that students will love to play.

Although the instrumentation has been condensed from full orchestra to string orchestra, most of the original elements have been preserved. Arranged in the key of G Major instead of the original B-flat Major, it allows greater accessibility for student ensembles. This impressive masterwork offers students great exposure to the late Classical era and to the legendary melodic writing of Franz Schubert.

Folk songs have a long and mysterious history. Their origins are unknown; they have come down to us mainly through an oral tradition passed from generation to generation. Many of the folk songs we have come to know and love are rooted in the ancient region of northern England and southern Scotland known as Northumbria. The three folk songs in this suite reflect this vibrant, wild and deeply historic region. Includes When the Boat Comes In; Dives and Lazarus and The Keel Row.
