Cello, Cello Quartet – Intermediate – Digital Download
Inspired by German Traditional Carol ‘O Tannenbaum’. Arranged by Louise King. Score, Set of Parts. 14 pages. Published by Cello Dreaming Publications.
The the first in a collection of arrangements of Christmas Carols for Intermediate Cello Quartet. The parts can be played by an individual cellist or as part of a larger cello ensemble. I have gifted the melody to every part, in turn. I have kept it in D major for natural resonance and familiarity of key. Aim for a choral sonority, a beautiful tone and full vibrato throughout. I have included suggestions for finger patterns and bowings with numeral references for the strings the natural harmonics are played on. I hope you enjoy learning this new arrangement and sharing this music with others.
All of my arrangements include bowings, fingerings, dynamics and articulation for easier sight-reading and learning in rehearsal.
