Londonderry Air - String Orchestra


An exciting arrangement for String Orchestra, includes Score/Parts.

This famous folk song originated in County Derry in Northern Ireland in the mid-1800s, first published in 1855. Though there are other settings for strings of this beautiful ballad already in print, this intense and concise David Bobrowitz arrangement captures the expressive moments inherent in the melody, and makes them approachable by less experienced orchestras.

Enjoy this quest for truly moving musical moments with your students and audience.
