Class - 5th January

Happy New Year!

A new new term means new music, and this term we have a distinctly 'folky' theme to our large ensemble pieces. We made a start on 'Fantasia on Greensleeves' (by Vaughan Williams) and 'Irish Tune from County Derry' and 'Shepherd's Hey' (Grainger versions) - having great fun trying to play the last chord of 'Shepherd's Hey' all at the same time!

Small group items:
  • 'London Trios' by Haydn - Heather, Judy & Margaret
  • Quintet in F by J. C. Bach - Penny, Diana, Kath, Polly, Mike & Imogen
  • 'Masonic Adagio' by Mozart - Theresa, Anya & Angela
