Castles And Kings
Randy Navarre (composer)
All Grade 1/2 ’s are playable with only 5 instruments: 1 flute, 2 clarinets, 1 alto saxophone, and 1 trumpet. Those instruments are not always doubled elsewhere. The song is written in such a way, it will sound good with a limited instrumentation and richer and fuller as your band gets bigger. All Grade 1/2 ’s by Northeastern Music are playable after only 5 – 7 lessons. At this performance level, no clarinet crosses the break. The 1st trumpet’s highest note is A. Castles and Kings is written in choral style incorporating all chords of the diatonic scale, great for working on balance and intonation. This is one of our most popular in the Grade 1/2 series.
