This arrangement of the beautiful American folk song, Shenandoah, will be a crowd-pleaser when programmed for advanced high school trombone choirs or low brass ensembles. Scored in the keys of D-flat and E-flat major, the range is from low D-flat (bass trombone) to high A-flat (in moving parts of trombone 3, 4, 5). Why not feature the entire low brass section of your performing group? Euphoniums (baritone horns reading bass clef) and tubas can easily be added and doubled on selected parts. Oh Shenandoah is also known by the names Shenandoah or Across the Wide Missouri. It is a traditional American folk song of uncertain origin that dates to the early 19th century, originating with Canadian and American fur traders, who were great singers, traveling down the Missouri River.The song has several different sets of lyrics. Some lyrics refer to the Oneida chief Shenandoah and a canoe-going trader who wants to marry his daughter. By the mid-1800s, various versions of the song had become a sea shanty heard or sung by sailors in various parts of the world.
