Program Notes

This march setting of the 16th-century traditional English folk song Greensleeves is an outstanding fusion piece for beginners. Many versions of the song pertain to Christmas and New Year's events. The most popular of these is What Child Is This?, which was written by William Chatterton Dix in the mid-1860s. With teaching opportunities for contrasting articulations and phrasing, this is a wonderful selection to march into the holiday season.

Performance Notes

With homogeneous instrument use, there will be crossed voices, so be sure that students adjust dynamics so the melody is always heard. In an effort to support completely flexible instrumentation, the following editorial accommodations are included to address potential Challenges.

Where appropriate, some parts may have multiple notes. However, they will not be marked div. When this occurs, assign the most appropriate notes for your students.
