Celtic Music for Flute, Volume 2
Following on from Jessica's hugely successful book Celtic Music for Flute, she has produced a Volume 2 which contains 46 pieces ranging from lovely portraits to lively jigs. They come from traditions including Irish, Scottish, Welsh, and Manx, and were gathered from various sources: among others, manuscripts written for bagpipe, lute, mandora, fiddle, and voice. The unique personality and sound of the flute complements them all.
A few of the tunes are more than 400 years old; some are new. All have that inexplicable but necessary magic, the quality which draws the flutist to begin the tune again, just one more time...
Whether a march, lilt, love song, or lament, each melody in this collection is a gem; many are sure to become cherished favorites. The accompanying Play-Along CD includes all the tunes in the same order in which they appear in the book. This CD features separate channels for flute and guitar so that the flutist can play along with the guitar accompaniment. Allan Alexander artfully renders the chords on guitar, providing a harmonic tapestry over which the melodie s float.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
