When Summer’s In the Meadow

With its title originating in one of the most poignant, nostalgic lines of text in the Irish folk song “Danny Boy”, Standridge has created a dreamily beautiful setting of this beloved song, accessible to young bands. A number of scoring elements elevate this approachable work to a higher musical plane, including a unison clarinet section, well-placed chromatic passing tones, and dramatic counter-melodies. Bands at all levels will want to program this gorgeous arrangement, as the opportunities for expressive music making are nearly endless!
