The famous "Rule Britannia" in a new arrangement by Nigel Wicken. Each "verse" features different sections of the orchestra. The final part has the benefit of some interesting harmonies, more "Wicken" than "Arne". Although no voice part is scored, it is quite possible for an over-excited audience to join in at the traditional moments! The Violin 3 part is a treble clef version of the Viola part except for a few out-of-range notes.
Duration: 4 minutes
A PACK comprises an A4 sized full score plus a complete set of parts including strings 4/4/3/4/2.
