  • Pryor, Arthur (Sparke)

    Blue Bells of Scotland (Sparke) [treble clef]

    19th Century (ca. 1899). American. Classic virtuoso showpiece based on an old Scottish folk tune that helped make Sousa-band trombonist Arthur Pryor famous. Comprised of an introduction, theme and three progressively more difficult variations with a cadenza between the 2nd and 3rd variation. Full band accompaniment available on special order, catalog #25157. U-Play CD available also, number 25113. Set here in B-flat treble clef for trumpet or euphonium. This is the same piece as the trombone version(our 08015) but in treble clef. There are a few minor details that are different, otherwise it's the same chart.
