This work contains three movements (Marianne s'en va-t-au moulin', She's like the Swallow and J'entends le moulin) based on traditional Canadian folk songs. Morley Calvert (1928-1991) originally wrote this suite for brass band and is published by the Salvation Army. Around the same time he also did a version for concert band, which was never published. It was this concert band version which has been used as the basis for this arrangement for brass choir (4 trumpets, 2 horns, 2 trombones, euphonium and tuba) and optional percussion. This work is similar in style and difficulty to his famous Suite from the Monteregian Hills.
