Folk Strings is a collection of folk melodies from around the world arranged for strings. This collection includes melodies in a variety of moods and with rhythmic patterns which are representative of their country of origin. The arrangements in Folk Strings can be effective with players at a variety of levels. Less experienced players can play the melody line. In order to provide maximum flexibility, the collection is available in a number of instrumentations. The melody is passed around so that all members of the ensemble can have the opportunity to play the tune. Score and parts are marked with "Melody" and "Harmony" to help players bring out the melody at the appropriate moment.
