As I Walked Through The Meadow
Pastorale On A Traditional English Folksong
Arranged by Pierre La Plante
Pierre La Plante is well-known for his mastery at creating concert band settings of folk tunes into Grainger-esque settings. “As I Walked Through The Meadow” is a pastoral-like setting of a traditional English folk tune that, with careful attention to intonation and expressive playing, will give your ensemble’s musicianship a chance to shine. The middle section is a variation on the main theme which returns, builds to a climax and ends quietly in a somewhat wistful manner. A beautiful choice for concert or contest change of pace. Outstanding music for wind band!
