Scarborough Fair by English Folk Song. Arranged by Brian Balmages. For string orchestra. FJH Beginning Strings. Grade 1. Score and set of parts. Composed 2010. Duration 2:00. Published by The FJH Music Company Inc (FJ.ST6214).
Extensive harmonies and soaring melodic lines contribute to this sensitive setting of the ever-popular song Scarborough Fair. The opening lines hint at the melancholy nature of the music, which eventually transforms into a rich sonority of sweeping harmonies and countermelodies. Although scored for beginners, the work is orchestrated so that advanced groups will enjoy playing it as well. Forever memorable!
