Program Notes

This arrangement of the Arioso (from Cantata No. 176) is soft, delicate, sensitive, and meant to be performed at a very slow tempo, this superlative Alfred Reed arrangement is a wonderful addition to the band repertoire. Definitely written for mature bands, the notes aren’t hard, but the music itself will challenge the skills of even the very best bands.
