This is the sixth release in James Rae’s “All Together Easy Ensemble” series. It offers four arrangements for beginners’ ensemble: “The Skye Boat Song”, Wagner’s “Bridal Chorus” (Here comes the bride!), James’ own composition “Rugged Rock” and the twentieth century classic ballade “Mack the Knife” by Kurt Weill. “Mack” was a hit by Frank Sinatra and, more recently, Robbie Williams and will be an equal hit for young musicians, perhaps as a music festival entry or for a practical examination.
