An exciting new series of guitar ensemble music. Each title includes a full score and parts for four guitars and optional bass guitar. Teacher and student performance notes and a listening CD are included. The hauntingly beautiful "Europa (Earth's Cry Heaven's Smile)" is one of Carlos Santana's most popular instrumentals. In addition to Santana's own classic recording, this song was a huge instrumental hit for tenor saxman Gato Barbeiri. This arrangement will make a great final concert selection. Intermediate/advanced level: appropriate for high school students in Levels 2 and 3 of the Method.
