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:
My Soul, there is a Country far beyond the stars
I know my soul hath power to know all things
Never weather-beaten sail
There is an old belief
At the round Earth’s imagined corners
Lord, let me know mine end
