blankI made this arrangement eight years ago to be played with a friend for a school performance, which sadly never happened. Since then, the score has been shelved… only now do I feel sufficiently determined to revise it and release it here. As far as possible, however, I have refrained from modifying the original notes. (I wanted to leave the arrangement as something at which I can look back in future, and be entertained by the ignorant simplicity of my past self.) Instead, I have concerned myself adding with articulation and dynamic markings, refining the formatting, and inserting appropriate page turns.

blankFeel free to have a go at the piece with a friend!
