  • SATB Saxophone Quartet.

  • includes optional 5th part.

  • A rousing foot stomper in Celtic style!


Kayleigh in Killarney is a stomping SATB quartet of around 3.5 minutes duration for  players of around grade 6/7 ability.


It begins with a Soprano and Baritone question and answer type introduction which reveals the main theme. Accompaniment gives a definite celtic bagpipe feel complimenting the melody line nicely. The piece also features a jig like tenor solo which then becomes a duet when the soprano enthiusiastically joins in the fun. Alto and bari players give support with roudy claps and whoops! (optional!). Once again, the theme returns before subduing to a melancholy baritone solo, gently accompanied by tenor, then alto and sop too, before cranking up the pace once again with the return of the initial melody, plus the new melody intertwined. A final key change adds to the drama before an exciting ending leaves us on a high.


Also included is an optional 5th part (Alto 2, and Tenor 2 is provided) to give the option to expand the ensemble and increase the frivolities even further!


All players get their chance to shine in this quartet and all have a main solo line at some point.
