This song accompaniment was inspired by the forthcoming visit of the Salvation Army Symphonic Wind Ensemble (SASWE) to Brighouse. In essence, it is an upbeat arrangement of All Things Bright and Beautiful with hints of the English Traditional: Floral Dance.
Early trials would seem to indicate it will be very popular with church, garden party and bandstand audiences with minimal rehearsal.

The music is cross-cued to make it viable with 6/7 players. The percussion part adds a lot of character to the music but is not essential. Similarly, the addition of a tambourine etc. is encouraged.

This piece by Andrew R. Mackereth is a feature for the Euphonium & Baritone sections of the band. The accessible writing style ensures it maximises the appeal whilst minimising the time needed for rehearsal! The scoring is such that it is playable with two, three or four soloists. At the request of the Haaglanden Salvation Army Band an additional, entirely optional fifth part has been added to the full band set.
