Following “Lady Madonna”, Tom's arrangement of “Eleanor Rigby” sets a more serious and dramatic tone, beginning with a mallet feature that incorporates subtle hints of the familiar melody, followed by a bold and dramatic impact by the full band.

BLACKBIRD/YESTERDAY
Series: Arrangers' Publ Marching Band
Publisher: Arrangers' Publishing Company
Score & Parts
Artist: The Beatles

Level: 3

In total contrast to “Eleanor Rigby”, this arrangement draws on the lyrical nature of these graceful and well-known melodies of “Blackbird” and “Yesterday”. Tom Wallace's genius is on display as he interweaves both melodies in natural and effortless transition. The pace of this up-tempo ballad moves well and at 1:20 provides a nice change of pace without lingering too long.

Level: 3

Segueing immediately from “Blackbird / Yesterday”, the final production begins with a brief drum solo, reminiscent of those performed by Ringo Starr, before moving to the cheerful melody of “Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band”. Concluding with a swift, yet natural transition to the last song ever recorded by all four Beatles, “The End”, appropriately provides a grounded and powerful sense of closure to the program.
