REPUBLICOF ICELAND: Lofsöngur (Song of Praise)
Thisquick and easy national anthem arrangement is essential for traveling musicians,bands, instrumental groups and both amateur and professional ensembles. You canplay it with any virtually any combination of instruments: symphonic band,clarinet choir, brass ensemble, brass band, solos, duets and trios - almostanything!
Thisarrangement is in six independent parts each transposed into a variety of keys.For the most satisfying sound you’ll need to get a good balance between eachpart possibly with an emphasis on the melodic line. If you have a non-standardensemble, you can "pick 'n' mix" as required. The piano reduction can"fill" missing parts or can be used as the basis for an accompaniment.
