A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square - GUITAR QUARTET/LARGE ENSEMBLE
Derek Hasted writes "I first arranged this lovely tune for The Hampshire Guitar Orchestra, and my arrangement here produces a similar big sound from an intermediate guitar quartet.

School teachers will find this is an ideal piece for an end of semester concert, and adult quartets will find it makes a restful and easy-to-play interlude piece in a full-length concert. Being so well-known, this will be an audience pleaser!

The key changes in the original are really sublime and enjoyable, and the rounded guitar sound makes the journey to new keys a scenic ride wrapped in rich chords.

Like many of my arrangements, this is written to be accessible and fun, otherwise the music gets lost in a sea of technical worries. This uses familiar keys and positions to lock together quickly and reliably.

There’s no fingering or dynamics on this score - this is your chance to "make it yours!" - the tune stays with Guitar 1, but there are plenty of spots in the other parts which are "this is my moment" places - just do what makes the music sing.

I hope you enjoy playing this piece!"

This is one of a large and growing range of accessible ensembles from experienced arranger Derek Hasted, and is supplied as full score and parts. Derek's website at lists all his arrangements by title and by "number of instruments", with links to soundclips and sample score.
