Of the Father's Love Begotten for Piano and Strings
as a special meditative prelude during the Christmas season, this
arrangement of the ancient chant tune opens with a transparent texture
that climaxes with "leggiero" passage work in the strings before ending
calmly and sparsely. All parts are of moderate difficulty, presenting a
wonderful opportunity to feature your pianist, and the string parts are
equally effective when performed by a quintet, one on a part. Includes score and parts (one per instrument).
A rich tapestry of European music from the 13th-16th centuries. Includes the medieval Estampie Royale and the famous L'homme armé, Kemp's Jig and Henry VIII's favourite Pastime with Good Company via a rollicking Morris dance, a comical Bourée and more! The Complete edition includes a violin part, keyboard accompaniment with optional violin accompaniment, easy violin and guitar.
