A Ukrainian Folk song orchestrated by Yevhen Adamstsvych and transcribed for Brass Band by Chris Gorman
2 files are attached.
One for the Score which should be printed double sided.
The other is all the parts (4 solo cornet, 2 2nd etc). As MOST are made up of 2 pages each a print run of printing 2 A4 pages on 1 A3 sheet will work ideal except the final part (Drum Set) and penultimate part (Timpani) as the Timps is 1 page only.
Yevhen Adamtsevych was born in the village of Solonytsia, not far from the town of Lubny, Poltava oblast. He died in 1972 in the village of Kholmivka in Crimea. Adamtsevych became blind in his childhood. He lived in Romny where he became apprenticed to bandurist M. P. Oleksienko. He began to perform solo from 1927.
Zaporozhians were Cossacks who lived beyond (that is, downstream from) the Dnieper Rapids, the land also known under the historical term Wild Fields in today's Central Ukraine and Eastern Ukraine. Today, much of the territory is flooded by the waters of the Kakhovka Reservoir.
The Zaporozhian Sich grew rapidly in the 15th century from serfs fleeing the more controlled parts of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth. It became established as a well-respected political entity with a parliamentary system of government. During the course of the 16th, 17th and well into the 18th century, the Zaporozhian Cossacks were a strong political and military force that challenged the authority of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth, the Tsardom of Russia, and the Crimean Khanate.
