Program Notes

Using only six notes, this arrangement of Shepherd's Hey retains the wonderful character of Grainger's setting while staying accessible to even the least experienced of students. The light style and energy of the piece makes this an exciting selection for your next concert program.

- Program Note by publisher


The air on which Shepherd’s Hey is based was collected by Cecil J. Sharpe. In some agricultural districts in England, teams of "Morris Men" decked out with jingling bells and other finery can still be seen dancing to such traditional tunes as Shepherd’s Hey, which are played on the fiddle or on the’pipe and tabor’(a sort of fife and drum).
