Quick Overview

No. 23 of Grainger’s British Folk Music settings, Molly on the Shore is a rollicking treatment of a popular Irish Reel. It scampers and bounces its way through a succession of sonorous climaxes, accumulating an amazing collection of memorable counter themes as it goes along, before subsiding in a delicately scored coda that ends with a characteristic Grainger bang. An acclaimed classic, we are proud to offer this engraved and corrected edition of Molly on the Shore with a complete full score. Duration: 4’ Key: Ab Ranges: Solo Cornet – C; Cornet – G; Horn – Ab; Trombone – Ab
