At the Midwest Clinic I could have spent hours and tons of money looking though the hundreds of scores they had available. I decided to pick up English Folk Song Suite: by Ralph Vaughn Williams. I personally like the folk song tunes and style of the piece, having put it together in a few rehearsals with the University of South Carolina Wind Ensemble. I will start studying the peice to hopefully do it with a high school band someday but here is the preliminary information:
1. Title: English Folk Song Suite
2. Composer: Ralph Vaughan Williams
3. Publisher: Boosey and Hawkes
4. Distributor: Hal Leonard
