Grade: 4 - 5
Scored for 3 Violins, Viola & Cello. English composer Peter Warlock (1894-1930), was a keen advocate of early music, when few others were, and produced many new editions of long forgotten music during the 1920s. These delightful anonymous pieces from the 16th and early 17th-centuries would be suitable for quintet or larger forces. Ideal for the intermediate ensemble, there are few technical chalenges but scope for ensemble training and a useful introduction to early music styles. Each short piece has its own strong character and identity and there are no dynamic indications to allow each ensemble to create their own personal and unique performance. A good introduction to ensemble playing.
