"Happy Days Are Here Again" (or " Wochenend und Sonnenschein" as it is known in German) is indeed a happy arrangement but was sadly not that popular with the Blue Tuesday consort. It requires a disciplined approach (many sections in all voices not being on the beat) and consequently even experienced players find themselves in difficulties when playing in consort. At the same time, the "happy" sound has to be maintained.
With this piece, my recorder and folk-music worlds overlap as I have played (concertina) and sang Happy days are here again quite a lot.
