4BR Shop: Father Abraham

There is a wonderful take on a classic children's tune by composer Michael Pilley — ideal for youth bands to perform in concerts.

Father Abraham
  The work is ideal for youth bands

A classic children's tune from composer Michael Pilley's childhood growing up in the Salvation Army, 'Father Abraham' is a catchy melody that also has matching actions — perfect for youth bands.

Focus on fun

With the focus on fun, this arrangement has many different features, from a Bb Bass solo to start the frivolity, trombones "wolf whistling", a two note 2nd Horn solo, sleazy plunger work, a truck horn, and conductor choreography to top it all off!

Price: £20.00

To purchase: https:/­/­4barsrest.shop/­product/­father-abraham/

Support us for less than a cup of coffee...

4BR wants to ensure that the brass band movement remains vibrant and relevant. We also want to be able to question, challenge and critically examine those who run and play in it, producing high quality journalism that informs as well as entertains our readers.

So if like us you value a strong, independent perspective on the brass band world - then why not consider becoming a supporter and help make our future and that of a burgeoning brass band movement more secure.

So one less cappuccino then?
