DIGITAL (PDF) SHEET MUSIC

This is a collection of 40 traditional folk tunes, arranged for two violas. Both viola parts are written in alto clef and fit on the viola in first position. There are chords written above the melody, so they can be played with an accompanist, e.g. on guitar or piano.

The scores are provided without bowings or grace notes, as these are personal to each player and should be developed independently according to preference.

All the melodies are written in the key that fits best on the viola, so most of them are not in the original key. They have been adapted for viola using the same fingering that would be used on a violin, and as such are not generally suitable for playing in a public session (unless there has been prior discussion with other players!), as the keys will not be the standard ones used.

The following tunes are included:

South Wind
The Road to Lisdoonvarna
The Blackthorn Stick
The Rights of Man
