Selected Scottish, Irish and Welsh Folk Song Arrangements composed by Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827). Voices (Solo) in Ensemble. For 1-3 Voices. This edition: Revised new edition. Vocal Part Book. Edition Peters #EP11251A. Published by Edition Peters (PE.P11251A).
While working on his final piano sonatas Beethoven was commissioned to write a large number of folk song arrangements, most of them to English melodies (Ye Shepherds; Faithfu' Johnnie; The Soldier; The Chase of the Wolf; etc.). A selection of these appears in this revised new edition. The 15 pieces are grouped into trios, duets and solo songs for every register and make a welcome addition to every Lieder. The separate vocal score makes the pieces easier for singers to perform as all stanzas are placed directly beneath the lines of the music.
Vocal score. See EP11251 for the score (with piano part). Selected from Op.108 and WoO 152-157.
