A dozen of the most beautiful traditional melodies from the British Isles and North America arranged as concert pieces, with rich harmonies and variations. Carefully voiced and fingered for fluidity and effectiveness, the collection offers a wide range of style and expression. Barbara Allen and The Three Ravens are strongly influenced by the Elizabethan lute tradition, while John Riley and Come All Ye Fair and Tender Ladies have a more contemporary feel. Black Is the Color of My True Love’s Hair and Lament for Owen Roe O’Neill are studies in somber intensity, the modal She Moved Through the Fair sounds the ancient connection between Arabic and Celtic music, and Banks of the Ohio provides an interlude of gentle bluegrass swing, with a hint of gospel. Notation only. 32 pp.
