I wish I could give credit to the arranger for this number but I have not been able to find out who did it. This is one of the most beautiful arrangements in our library. It is not difficult to perform and the only concern would be the time signature changes. We recorded this on our latest CD and you might notice that the recording is done one step lower. I decided after the recording that this higher key worked better and that is the arrangement listed here. If I were to recommend one of the top ten arrangements in our library, this would be one of them. We are performing Shenandoah on our concert Sunday and I’m sure it will be one of the audience’s favorites. You definitely need this one in your book.

  • I purchased this piece from you a while back and deleted the E-mail it came in. The copies of the music were on my old hard drive which crashed and so now I’m left without this piece of music for my students.

    Could you please check your receipts and see that I’ve paid and then E-mail me the copies of “Oh Shenandoah”?

    I appreciate your time.
