Program Notes

High and rugged, profiled by great cliffs and narrow ravines, the Faeroe Islands of the North Atlantic are populated by a gentle and simple people. From the native folk-music heritage of this distant land, Percy Grainger chose the lovely, flowing folksong Let's Dance Gay in Green Meadow for his glittering setting for concert band.
