Michael Row the Boat Ashore
Written in memory of a devoted ringer, this gently syncopated arrangement of the well-known spiritual is made special by the inclusion of an optional trumpet or clarinet score. The music moves through several keys and features triplet rhythms as well as syncopation. 99 measures in all, the piece is scored in Bb Major, b-flat minor, and C Major, with short stints in A Major and F Major. The trumpet/clarinet part included in bell score.
