This poignant yet uplifting piece is from the stage show & film "Oliver" and is another fine example of Lionel Bart's craftsmanship with melody.

Derek Hasted writes "This makes a delightful 'quiet piece' in a concert - many of the audience will know the music and my arrangement has been crafted to make an accessible duet that generates rich chords without complexity - the work is split across the players.

The first guitar part goes high up the neck, but the music is slow and the shapes are straightforward.

The second guitar part requires the 6th string to be tuned down to D and there are a couple of chords that require three fingers to be placed simultaneously, but there are lots of open strings throughout the piece that help improve the sustain and flow. The bottom D provides real depth to this piece and the sound is full and lush for minimal effort. The last chord has a thick bass that creates the illusion of an even deeper D to end the piece.

I have also arranged "Where Is Love" by Lionel Bart for solo guitar and for flute&guitar - you can find them here on SheetMusicPlus

I hope you enjoy this piece!"
