Basically, I really like this tune, so I decided to arrange it. The beginning is the 4/4 ballad version. Then I put it in fast 3/4. Yeah, that's about all I have to say about it, really. Just tell me what you think."Star of the County Down" is an old Irish ballad set near Banbridge in County Down, in Northern Ireland. The song shares its melody with many other works, including the almost identical English tune "Kingsfold", well known from several popular hymns, such as "Led By the Spirit."
The song is sung from the point of view of a young man who chances to meet a charming lady by the name of Rose (or Rosie) McCann, referred to as the "star of the County Down". From a brief encounter the writer's infatuation grows until, by the end of the ballad, he imagines wedding the girl.
This tune can be heard in famous pieces such as the first movement of Secon Suite in F and in the first movement of English Folk Song Suite(Or maybe the third movement, but I think first).
Also, sorry for the odd cutoff. I was trying to do something, but it just made the cutoff sound weird.
I forgot to mention, it is written for a concert band without saxophones. I kinda forgot to put them in, so I just kinda wrote it without.
