Holiday

The main melodic material is from a 1591 English tune in a Coventry play better kown as Coventry Carol. The warmth and expressiveness of the cantabile opening section is Romantic in nature and is written to produce a lush sound from the string orchestra. The quick section that follows is very rhythmic and requires a solid bowing style. This is a serious and effective work that can be a strong closing selection.

Program Notes

The main melodic material is from a 1591 English tune in a Coventry play better kown as Coventry Carol. The warmth and expressiveness of the cantabile opening section is Romantic in nature and is written to produce a lush sound from the string orchestra. The quick section that follows is very rhythmic and requires a solid bowing style in a linear texture that gives all parts lead material during the piece. This is a serious and effective work that can be a strong closing selection.
