An adaptation of Shetland Sequence, arranged by J. Steele, Saxtet Publications.

- Program Note from score


This collection of Shetland reels was originally arranged by Jan Steele, a founder member of the saxophone ensemble Saxtet. He transcribed them from a guitar performance, although traditionally they would have been played on the fiddle.

The original saxophone quartet version was regularly used by Saxtet as a rousing concert closer and encore, requiring massive amounts of stamina and plenty of self-control to avoid getting carried away too quickly.
