When I'm Sixty-Four

The tempo is a little slow, and I'm not crazy about the full choir on the opening line only because the band instrumentation is sparce and features just 6 clarinets (which I like). After they play the intro, the choir comes in with guns blazing, and it's a little overwhelming. Maybe it should be a smaller section of chorus until "Will you still need me..."

Tenor saxes and bass clarinet need to get the triplet thing at the end of each chorus, the bouncy feel in the 8th notes is not always there, and the chimes part is not in the right place. Upper woodwinds need to check accidentals.

Chorus overall sounds great. Be careful on the entrance of the last verse. I like this one a lot.
