This novelty piece presents two well-known Sunday School songs, "Jesus Loves Me" and "Deep and Wide" in an interesting battle much like a group of young children try to argue on what song to sing. The introduction and the bridge have an intentional flavor of a famous circus march.
This well-known piece by Claude Debussy is the eighth piece in the composer's first book of Préludes, written between late 1909 and early 1910. Each part has a few notes as possible with the goal of six notes.
This is a well-known waltz which has been used for Circus trapeze acts for many years. It is originally a Mexican song titled, “Sobre Las Olas” (Over the waves). Although very famous in Mexico, it received a greater public knowledge when used in the film “The Great Caruso” (1951). A lovely song with a vocal part included to be sung at the end.
This is a wonderful rendition of the Star Spangled Banner with the Horns taking the lead; the Trombones the third line; and finally the Cornets on the last line. It contains the Damerosh insert and a unique ending as well as unique harmonies. It is a very lovely piece which can be used in the indoor and outdoor concert.
