This is one of sequence of string quintets (score and parts). The movements are: 1 - Marie for shame, a sprightly number encouraging Marie to get out of bed and enjoy the day. It is inspired by the poem "Marie vous estes paresseuse" by Ronsard. 2 - Nocturne represents Marie going back to sleep! Possibly my most indulgent piece. 3 - Camp David is klezmer in style and somewhat camp, it is based on a Yiddish folk song - ikh bin a meidel in de joren. 4 - Blue Boar Blue is based on a poem by a friend who lived in Blue Boar quad (Christ Church Oxford) and laments the fact he has to stay in and study while he is actually looking forward to taking his girlfriend out punting on the river In each case, the ideal positioning of the instruments is: cello 1, violin 1, viola, violin 2, cello 2The pdf file contains the score and parts.The sound sample is an electronic previewI thought it might be useful also to provide all scores together, so that is also available under the title "Sweet Suite for string quintet"I have also made videos for each movement, which can be seen on youtube: Marie for shame Nocturne Camp David Blue Boar Blue
