Duration (minutes): 
Detailed Instrumentation: 
Concert Band
This setting of Grainger's music came about to fill a need for more of the composer's music to be set a a level appropriate to the average high school band.  It is hoped that these three pieces will serve well as an introduction to Grainger's music, and that their appearance here is consistent with his desire to make his music available to all musicians, not just the more accomplished.  I.  Country Gardens (English Morris Dance), II.  Mo Nighean Dubh (My Dark-haired Maid), III.  "The Gypsy's Wedding Day"
