Dowd's Favourite

Description

'Dowd's Favourite' is an infuriatingly infectious little tune. It is a traditional Irish reel with a real swing in its step, and this arrangement feels rather like the saxophone octet has stumbled into a little Irish country tavern to join the merriment!

The saxophone has a tone ripe for folk-tinged expression, so is well-suited to jigs and reels such as this one. All the players get a part of the frolicking melody, so the fun is shared around.

The standard parts are:
SSAATTBB

The alternative parts are:
sno(optional) A3 A4 T3 Bs

Instrumentation

(sno) s s/a a a t/a t b/t b/bs
