Item Number: H0.812933-SC000006747

Derek Hasted writes "This fantastic theme was written as an integral part of the film of the same name.

Ennio Morricone and his son Andrea rightly received a BAFTA award for the gorgeous soundtrack music.

My arrangement captures the four “verses” that feature in this piece - each verse maintains the same thematic material but the accompaniment becomes more involved and with a thicker texture, before the piece fades away again. The guitar accompaniment is styled on the piano solo score, but tailored here and there to fit the guitar like a glove.

The key here isn’t the same as the original, but it fits right into the “sweet spot” of the guitar's pitch range and allows for a guitar accompaniment that can use open strings to improve the sustain. Unlike other arrangements, this has plenty of space and few finger gymnastics, so the gentle movement of the original is easy to reproduce.

The tune moves from guitar to guitar, back and forth, to add interest for both the audience and the players.

(I have also published an arrangement for flute and guitar)

I hope you enjoy playing this piece!"
