Dance Suite




Instrumentation: standard Wind Band

This collection of traditional dance tunes includes folk music and some lively Morris dance melodies. There is plenty here for band members to enjoy and opportunities for everyone to play the tune at some point. The different parts vary in their levels of difficulty and should be accessible to any competent School or amateur Wind Band.

As well as some straightforward sections, there are one or two where close listening is needed to ensure that all parts are counting correctly and coming in in the right place. There is a range of tempi, time signatures and textures to add greater aural and performance variety.
