Nursery Rhyme Medley




Instrumentation: standard Wind Band

This piece was often used as the basis of a light-hearted musical quiz, with the aim that the audience either named all the nursery rhymes used or, at least, counted how many different ones there were. It is worth noting that there are phrases from three different ones within the first four bars and then the music presents a completely different one at bar 5, Figure A.

As usual, different instruments and sections are featured as the piece progresses, thus affording interest to all players.

It was never envisaged that this would be played with a drum kit but I would have no objections should you wish to add one.
