Product details

Folk Songs 76 were arranged for the Consort of Sydney in 1976. Commissioned by Musica Viva Australia, they were designed to display the many different musical colours and moods of the Consort during their tours for Musica Viva in Australia and Europe. I researched volumes of folk songs and chose those which appealed to me and would suit the Consort, which consisted of soprano voice; flute/recorder; guitar; cello; harpsichord and small percussion.
In this publication of folk songs from France, Mongolia, Greece and Canada, there is scope to substitute instruments. Flute can be exchanged for recorder and viola could possibly be used instead of cello. Percussion instruments are of a variety easy to find - tambourine, small bell and drum - and in Kharchin a keyboard with chimes available can be substituted successfully for chimes.
