The Willow Tree

Series: MusicWorks Grade 3 Publisher: Hal Leonard Format: Softcover Score & Parts Composer: Pádraigín Ní Uallacháin Arranger: Michael Sweeney

Level: 3

Although this haunting tune has the flavor and sentiment of a traditional Irish folk song, it was composed in 1995 by multifaceted artist Pádraigín Ní Uallacháin. Her inspiration for the song was the idea that when we are happy or sad, the elements and the natural world are aligned with our feelings. From the wistful lyrics of the song; “Down by the river there's a tall willow tree, who weeps all night for you and me.” This evocative setting for band follows this sentiment through peaks and valleys of sound and emotion.
