This work contains three movements (Marianne s'en va-t-au moulin', She's like the Swallow and J'entends le moulin) based on traditional Canadian folk songs. Morley Calvert originally wrote this suite for brass band. Around the same time he also did a version for concert band, which was never published. It was this concert band version which has been used as the basis for this arrangement for 11 trumpets and optional percussion. This work is similar in style and difficulty to his famous Suite from the Monteregian Hills.
