(Oh) When the saints




Instrumentation: standard Wind Band

This well-known tune from the early 20th century is given an up-beat arrangement, with some swing elements. There is opportunity for insertion of glissando for those who have mastered this technique.

There is also a sudden drop to piano for a passage in “stop time.” The ending adds some chromatic harmonies and a big crescendo.

The arrangement is suitable for School and amateur Wind Bands.
