  • Highly recommended

From the Publisher

In 1652 a collection of entertaining vocal music was printed under this title. Catch is a circular canon for three, four or more voices on mostly jocose lyrics. Delius has transferred a selection of such catches to instruments. The canon playing is a special musical pleasure in independent voice and can loosen up and enliven the instrumental lessons. The melodies of this edition are of vital freshness, easy to understand and play.

Difficulty guide: 4-6
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
