Tyneside Waltz Medley




A more compact version of this arrangement can be found under Folk Band, where it is in a variable format, eminently suitable for performance as an Ensemble piece for all of the GCSE examination syllabi, as long as any rules regarding doubling are followed.

This version for Orchestra also includes Alto and Tenor Saxophones as well an optional part for an Electric Bass Guitar.

The three beautiful Northumbrian melodies are Water of Tyne, My Bonny Lad and Bonny Tyneside, each of which is in  triple time, with the arrangement to be performed at a gentle tempo. There is some doubling within this orchestration to allow for flexibility, or the fact that not all instruments might be available, and the Brass parts are written for players of a general School ability.
