Seldom do I have time to sit down and compose anything of my own anymore and when I can, I truly enjoy the experience.

I have wanted to write something for a full brass choir and this seemed to write itself. It is based on a seldom heard folk song and a Theme and Variation form seemed to fit this number.

Most Theme and Variations have distinct separations between each variation but what I wanted was a more “through composed” feel so each variation runs into the next.
