Two Traditional Celtic Tunes for String Quartet
From the back cover:
"'Star of the County Down' is a sentimental Irish ballad. This popular folk tune was the basis for Ralph Vaughn Wiliams' Five Variant of Dives and Lazarus. Thus tune is a pentatonic melody with a romantic feel.
"'After the Battle of Aughrim' is a beautiful account of the last great defeat of the native Gaelic army in Ireland. It offers a tug to the heart. Easy for students to play, this tune's yearning tonality reflects the sobriety of the war and subsequent loss that inspired this piece."
Arranged by Irene Sazer. Includes parts and score. Published by String Charts.
