The Radio 4 UK Theme - Revised Arrangement

Sunday, 14 July 2013

This arrangement of "The Radio 4 UK Theme" by Fritz Spiegal and Manfred Arlan of National Airs from around the UK has been heard for many years at the start-up of BBC Radio 4 first thing in the morning. It brings together traditional tunes from England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland including "Early One Morning", "Rule Britannia", "The Londonderry Air", "Annie Laurie", "What Shall We Do With the Drunken "Sailor?", "Greensleeves", "Men of Harlech" and "Scotland the Brave".

This revised arrangement for Concert Band, produced by Geoff Kingston in July 2013, has been taking down one tone and the instrumentation slightly reduced to make it more accessible to smaller bands whilst retaining all the richness and colours of the original setting. A great nostalgic piece that is fun to play and will roll back the years.
