VARIATIONS on The Last Rose of Summer by Thomas Chipp (1817)

£7.00

for Piano and Guitar. Thomas Chipp (1793 - 1870) was a celebrated harpist in London and wrote these Variations originally for the harp. This edition is a transcription by Ian Gammie, stylistically following the vogue for piano and guitar duets in the early 19th century - a combination that worked extremely well until the later development of the piano dwarfed the sound of the guitar. If a modern piano is used, the player should be alert to the need to achieve this balance between the instruments. The movements are:

1) - Introduction & Air (Theme). 2) - Andante Espressivo.. 3) – Simplice. 4) – Bolero. 5) - Adagio Espressivo. 6) – Andante. 7) - Con Moto. 8) - Con animato (Finale)

The guitar has extended solo passages in the Bolero and the Adagio Espressivo, and shares thematic material in other movements in addition to the accompagnato passages. Suitable for players of Grade 6 - 7 standard. The whole work lasts approximately 11 minutes.

GERMAN GUITAR SONGS of the 19th Century, Book 2

SEVEN GOETHE SONGS for medium high voice and guitar

£7.00

Goethe, as the greatest poet of his day, attracted many German composers with his lyrical poems, and an unusually large number were cast as guitar songs - the arch Romantic format. These seven songs, with their original guitar accompaniments from the early 19th century, cover a wide dramatic range from the simple folk-like setting of Ich ging im Walde to the drama of unrequited love and young Werther's suicide. Text in German, with an English translation given in the Introduction. Ich ging im Walde, Schäfers Klage, Der Musensohn, Ich denke dein, Der Rattenfänger aus Hameln, La Mort de Werther, Nähe des Geliebten. Separate parts for singer and guitarist. Three of the songs are given in transposed versions as well as the original key so that the whole book can be sung by medium voice.

Several of the songs are recorded on the CD CM-002 Goethe and the Guitar. Special reduction for purchase of CD if bought in conjunction with this book. Please contact us for details.

£8.00

Medium Voice and Guitar. The Introduction (12,000 words long) examines Moore's lifelong flirtation with the guitar (and with a number of attractive females playing the instrument too). Moore was known to play the guitar and occasionally accompanied himself when singing his famous Irish Melodies.

The ten songs are:

The Minstrel Boy (The Moreen). The Meeting of the Waters (The Old Head of Denis). By that lake (The Brown Irish Girl). Oft in the Stilly Night (Scotch Air).

Come Tell me says Rosa (Stevenson / Moore). Dear Harp of my Country (New Langolee). The Dream of Home (Moore, arr. for guitar by C.M.Sola)

Ar Hýd y Nôs - Variations for Flute (or Viola) & Guitar,  c.1810 

£5.00

An arrangement from a set of 19th century variations for the harp. The original Welsh folksong is known in English as Poor Mary Anne, or rather more widely as the hymn tune All Through the Night.  The composer was C. Neville, an early 19th century harpist about whom little is known apart from his various publications. There are four variations, with the guitar sometimes taking the main melody while the solo instrument weaves around it.  The piece has proved popular in concert performances, and is light and airy in character.

The edition provides a score with separate parts for Flute (in treble clef), also the same part an octave lower in alto clef for Viola, and a Guitar part.

£3.00 (Score only) see below for ensemble parts

Jolly settings of four Music Hall songs for a two-part choir, guitar ensemble, violin, bass and xylophone ad lib. The guitar parts are easy, (Grade 2-3) but the whole ensemble needs rehearsal to achieve the necessary vigour and humour. Score, instrumental parts for guitars, violin, bass, xylophone, and vocal scores all sold separately to suit different ensemble numbers and instrumentation. There is no single standard format for this edition, so please make it clear what various parts you need when ordering. The Guitar 1 part is designed for capo at 5th fret. If you are using a large choir, a guitar group of at least 12 players is recommended. With only 2 or 4 singers, a guitar trio will suffice.

CONCERTO in D Major - J.M. Böhm (2 solo guitars with string trio and bass)

£7.75

Written by J.M. Böhm (18th century) and arranged by Ian Gammie. Two soloists and accompanying string or guitar ensemble (guitar ensemble ideally of 6 to 10 players) are the intended forces, though a minimalist version can be made by quartet. There is an easy ripieno part for inexperienced players, and the Continuo Guitar needs to read fluently with Bass D. There is a set of parts for string trio with double bass for those who have a chamber group at their disposal. The work is more in the structure of a large trio sonata in four movements than a conventional concerto. The two solo parts need good players but are not excessively difficult. Four movements: Grave, Allegro, Andante, Minuet. Duration 11 mins.

Level F/D

Score and 2 sets of parts - extra parts 30p each
