Program Notes

Three famous colonial tunes: The Girl I Left Behind Me, Chester, and Yankee Doodle, plus the traditional drum cadence Roving Sailor, arranged in a durable medley. Compiled from the original 18th-century tune settings by David Lovrien. Traditional fifes in B-flat may be used, plus as many piccolos as you can muster! Percussion consists of two snares (the solo part to be played preferably on a colonial rope drum) and a bass drum.
