All titles have been edited to contain the following parts:
• Standard Finnish septet : E-flat soprano cornet, B-flat cornet I, B-flat cornet II, E-flat alto, B-flat tenor , B-flat baritone, BB-tuba (concert pitch Bass Clef). Our wish is that brass players will try the conical brass instrumentation, but also welcome playing by mixed wind bands.
• Additional parts provided: Part 1 in Bb, Part 1 in C, Part 2 in C, Part 3 in C, Part 4 in F, Part 5 in Bb treble,, Part 6 in Bb treble, Part 7 in Bb treble (for bass clarinet). This should provide most parts for a standard concert band. No percussion is included, but could be added ad lib. Additional parts in other transpositions can be requested.
The music was primarily composed in the United States by Finnish immigrants, but some pieces were by Finnish composers published by the Sibelius Club, Monessen PA
These items also available in Finland through the Finnish Wind Band Society (SPOL) website.
