Lyrics and Laments is a beautiful collection of a variety of folk songs: I Once Loved a Boy, Henry Martin, The Foggy Dew, MacPherson's Farewell, and Blow out the Candle. This collection is elegantly arranged and lasts slightly over 8 minutes. Having different moods and styles, this work features all the players at some point. This is an ideal new addition to the repertoire of brass quartets. This would make a great recital or concert piece because of the variety of tempi and moods.
