New and original music by 21st century, American Costa Rican composer James Nathaniel Holland. This extremely versatile publication of a score and set of parts is a great addition to any orchestral or choral music library:  either school, church, or community orchestra. Excellent for young musicians or intermediate-level volunteers, for the beginning conductor, but full of meaning for the professional orchestra as well.

YouTube video presentation:

These three beautiful Adagios are adapted from JN Holland's ballet, "The Wind in the Willows"   Perform together for concert or as stand alone pieces. They are perfect for weddings, funerals, graduations, or any solemn occasions. Texts are non-religious, but express universal sentiments of one's helping others, healing, and impermanence.

Complete, intended orchestration for: fl, ob, cl Bb, bsn, hrn, hrp, SATB choir, strings

Use as optional accompaniment for solos, or SATB choir. (Vocal parts included.)

Adagio No. 1 "My Salvation" (or if "If I've done one bit of good, that is my salvation") text by JN Holland
Adagio No. 2 "The Healing Power" (aka "Forget") Text by Kenneth Grahame
Adagio No. 3 "All Are Passersby"
