This is a very special arrangement of The Londonderry Air, which was done in tribute to the film Brassed Off. It is for nine saxophone players and sounds great when played well.

Parts are provided for:

2 sopranos in B flat

2 altos in E flat

4 tenors in B flat

1 baritone in E flat

Please listen to the mp3 file for a live recording. Massive thanks go to Kathleen Maxwell (California, USA) for recording this performance.
