    Program Notes
    This composition is based on the Australian folk song Streets of Forbes. Forbes is a country town in New South Whales situated around the Lachlan River and was home to the Bushranger Ben Hall. This piece features a vocal part (scored in the flute part). The vocalist may be male or female, or be a chorus of singers from the band. The tune should not be sung in an operatic style, but with folk inflections. In the event a vocalist pr choir is not available the melody has been scored into the flute and alto saxophone parts.On May 1865, at the age of 28, Ben Hall was shot dead by police. His body was then paraded through the streets of Forbes. This piece aims to capture the spirit of adventure and the tragedy associated with this story.
