Default Grade 5 Competition Tunes

Does anyone know of a good 4 part, 4/4 tune for a grade 5 solo competition? and also, can a lament or slow march be played in a Slow Air competition, where 4 parts are required also? i.e. Mackintosh's Lament.

Take a look at "The Children". It is a 4/4 march that is not too technically difficult. Should work for you in grades 4 - 5.

Four Part 4/4 for Grade 5?????
I have never seen that, but looked up Alberta requirements and there it is for G5. I would have to go with the Children as well. Great tune and not too difficulte. Got a couple places where you can do some technique but very tuneful.

If you are in Alberta Association (based on your profile) it says for slow air, 2 parted, but repeated. Important to adhere to the requirements. Lots of nice 2 parted airs. I would go with Hector the Hero myself.

Try Keltic Kalypso by John Winters. Available on his web page - http://www.stormpipes.com/comps.html

Might be better for Grade 4, but a very nice bouncy tune
