The Stranger

"The Stranger" is based on the "The Wayfaring Stranger" (aka "Poor Wayfaring Stranger" or "I Am a Poor Wayfaring Stranger"), is a well-known American spiritual/folk song likely originating in the early 19th century about a plaintive soul on the journey through life.

Category:  Concert Band,
Composer:  Jorge E. Garcia

Price:  $35.00

Performance Notes: 

This piece is written in the key of D minor.  The drum set part can be played on a low to mid tom-tom or, preferably on the Irish Bodhran.  The tonality is different than Western musical tradition at times - particularly the final thematic presentation.  The piece has a soft ending with the band singing the plaintive theme accompanied by the Marimba and drum.  If a Marimba is not available, any instrument can be chosen to play the ending theme sung by the band.
