Looking for Brian Boru's march

Post by rjc7313 » Sun Nov 19, 2017 8:24 pm

Hello, I'm looking for the sheet music for Brian Boru's march in particular the Yepes transcription as shown here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkFrn-oi1GY

I've heard that the sheet music might be under the title "Irish March" instead. Would really appreciate it if someone could give the sheet music or tell me where to purchase it. Also what level would this be?

The Yepes edition is published by Schott, GA 603 "Irish March". It is mid-intermediate in difficulty.

Douglas Niedt did an arrangement, it's in "Virtuoso Visions," available on his website.

Thanks, how hard would "mid-intermediate" be in terms of grades. I'm looking for something at grade 6-8

This is around Grade 5 or 6. The toughest aspect is that Yepes' arrangement absolutely requires a 10-string guitar to play it.

FYI, it can be accommodated to a six string:

I purchased the Yepes version and I'm in the process of modifying it for my seven string now.

Andreas Lindae performs it on a ten string:

It's a very clean recording and video with close-ups, which may help you assess the difficulty.
