Kingsfold for Brass Quintet and Organ (Trad./arr. Marlatt)


This folk song has been used as the melody for several popular hymns including: I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say, O Sing a Song of Bethlehem, I Feel the Winds of God Today and several others. Ralph Vaughn Williams also arranged a famous setting for string orchestra, the 5 Variants of 'Dives and Lazarus. It is a beautiful work that seems to float along both melodically and harmonically. This arrangement is opened by a solo trumpet with a sense of a lone player on the top of a hill surrounded by mist. The tune is then played in full quartet voicing leading to other variations and re-scorings. Ending, as it began, very peacefully and reflectively.
