This song is based upon a children's book "The Red Candles and the Mermaid." Originally for woodwind octet, it has been rescored for wind band by commission from Fukiage Jr. HS for performance at the 19th East Japan School Band Competition. Since the band only had a euphonium in the brass section at that time, I revised it for small band instrumentation. As the original version was for woodwinds, it can be done with limited brass.

(Tomohito Matsushita)
