How to use this book


For trombone and euphonium players
1. The TENOR and BASS parts are your main parts
a. However, it is better to have the tuba and low
woodwind instruments play the bass part
2. The SOPRANO and ALTO parts are just there so you can
see what the others are doing
3. When a part gets too high or too low, little CUE NOTES
are provided so you can always play with a GOOD
SOUND
4. Sometimes, youll see a note in parenthesis ( ). You
generally cannot play these notes because they are too
low. Usually, they are there just to show you where the
actual part should go.

Horkstow
Grange
collected by
Percy Grainger
(1906)


S
4

Horkstow Grange is a folk tune that Percy Grainger collected in 1906 by recording George Gouldthorpe. It is the
tale of how a waggoner, John "Steeleye" Span,and his foreman, John Bowlin', fell out and came to blows.
Gouldthorpe informed Grainger that Steeleye Span resented John Bowlin's harsh treatment and, burning with
resentment, Span wrote this song. The words are set to the tune of a ballad about naval mistreatment
"Andrew Rose, the British Sailor". No other variants of this song have been found.
Horkstow Grange is a house and range of farm buildings situated about half a mile north of Saxby All Saints. Those
who have researched the songs have produced no written evidence of these men or indeed
any local memory of them other than in this song.
Grainger recorded Gouldthorpe singing "Horkstow Grange". Gouldthorpe had a strong
North Lincolnshire accent and takes the song at a brisk pace.
Grainger's arrangement of the song for his "Lincolnshire Posy Suite" (1937) is very different. Grainger slows the song
down considerably giving it a stately feel. This is arguably the greatest transformation of any Grainger arrangement
and he deserves credit for creating such a fine piece from such as a fragmentary song.
