This Vincent Rose (or Puccini, as some have claimed) classic, travels gradually through time from quarter note metronome marking 64 to 124. It is a clever theme and variations style arrangement that transforms the early 20th century melody in five different statements. It progresses from a slow funeral march to an up tempo jazz double time feel with a variety of interesting ensemble work in between. Ranges are moderate with lead briefly to a high C. 5 trombones (4 tenor and 1 bass). Medium.
