6 Songs of Farewell

By C H H Parry

Arranged for instrumental groups

I have always loved singing Parry’s Six Songs of Farewell, which many count among his best a cappella choral works.

It occurred to me this month that this beautiful music would also be appreciated by instrumentalists and their audiences, so, in my current project, I have been transcribing them for flute, clarinet and wind ensembles.

The scores and parts (plus original texts and electronic audio previews and some videos) are available through the following links:
