Description

Paul Halley’s exuberant and joyful work Appalachian Morning was made famous by the Paul Winter Consort, and it has been masterfully arranged for percussion ensemble by Omar Carmenates. From a formal, melodic, and harmonic standpoint, it is a straightforward rendition comparable to any of the Paul Winter Consort’s many recordings/performances. However, in this arrangement, Carmenates brings out the bouncing yet fluid rhythmic qualities of the original by adding subtle (or maybe not-so-subtle) lines and colors spread throughout the ensemble.

This will be the perfect closer for a percussion ensemble concert to leave audiences uplifted and humming a catchy melody.

This piece comes as a professionally printed and bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or for tablet viewing.

  • Crotales (bowed)
  • Glockenspiel
