(What Child is This)Ralph Vaughan Williams/arr. Monday - Alfred Music Publishing
Rescored for strings, harp (keyboard) and two violin soloists, this ethereal setting of Vaughan Williams' stellar opus retains the form and texture of the original while bringing it to a "student-friendly" level for more players to enjoy. Melodic material is passed effortlessly from one section to another as Vaughan Williams intended and the first violin solo includes some 3rd position work while the second solo only requires 1st position. For large or small performing groups, this is a rich setting of a classic work appropriate for concerts, Christmas presentations, and festivals throughout the year.
