Digital PDF sheet music -  21 traditional folk tunes from Ireland, Scotland and England, arranged in four part harmony. Suitable for string quartets, string orchestra, fiddle groups and various other string ensembles.

This is a discounted bundle containing the Irish, Scottish and English packs.

The folk tune arrangements come in four parts: 

* melody line (the original tune)
* harmony 1
* harmony 2
* bass line

The harmonies and bass line are all provided in three versions: treble, alto and bass clef. This means the arrangements are flexible and can be used by various different instruments in duets, trios, quartets and larger groups.

You will receive various different versions of the score, plus individual instrument parts with the harmonies in all three clefs, so you can choose parts to use with a variety of different duos, trios, quartets and larger groups.

The scores are intended to be used as building blocks for creative musicians to build their own arrangements by weaving the different parts in and out, through multiple times through the tune.

However, you can also play a simple arrangement with all the parts in at once, so they can, for example, be used by a string quartet or string orchestra that needs a traditional folk repertoire.

The tunes included are:

The Sailor's Wife
Gloomy Winter
In Dispraise of Whisky
Jenny's Chickens
Da Full Rigged Ship
High Road to Linton

Mr Beveridge's Maggot
