Hoagy Carmichael's inspired song enjoys an exquisite revival in this luscious new arrangement for trombone quartet. Dipping into the full pallet of emotion from the original song, the arrangement draws rich sounds from your quartet whilst spreading the lead line liberally around so that everyone has a go at the big tune! Original interludes briefly divide the settings of the theme, allowing emotions to settle before the theme reigns again. A swing section hails for a while, adding flavor to the chart and showcasing another side of your quartet's capabilities, but ultimately the lavish textures from Hoagy's original song draw together once more, leading the song onward in its final refrain... finally, a reflective postlude melts the music back into the silence from whence it came....

"I like your scores for quartet from the British Trombone Society Day at Kneller Hall - they are really well written."
