Supernatural Ballads

picture of score

This is a work for SATB choir and brass band based on 3 traditional Scottish supernatural ballads: Sir Patrick Spens, The Twa Corbies, and The Wife of Usher's Well.

The choir writing is within the capabilites of most choirs - with a bit of practice! - while the band scoring is accessible to most grades of bands, with occasionally demanding solo lines.  

You can download free PDFs of the scores from this page: either the complete work for band and choir, or individual movements for choir and piano. Do get in touch if you want band parts.

The audio files are with band accompaniment.
