A standard version of Amazing Grace pipers are used to, but not a standard orchestral arrangement. The solo piper begins with strings, winds and brasses coming in with a repeated rhythm. The standard harmonies make way for different, though still tonal, harmonies before fading back to a solo pipes.
Mr. Bear's Dance is a jig in 9/8. The Celtic rhythms are energetic but playful. Mr. Bear is my nickname for my son. It can be performed by either solo violin or bagipe. (For bagpipes, parts must be ordered in Bb concert). A great idea for something happy.
