Virginia Croft has taken a popular German canon and transformed it into a stunning new piece for young string groups. It begins with the canon as is, and then adds two other composed themes that complement the original tune. With its largely contrapuntal composition, this piece is an excellent opportunity for students to develop their independence.
"All things shall perish from under the sky Music alone shall live, music alone shall live, Music alone shall live, never to die." Here is an exciting treatment of a well-known simple canonic melody, first stated in its entirety by the cellos. As it passes through the voices, it should predominate over the accompanying embellishments, resulting in an energetic and exciting presentation of an old tune. What a wonderful way to teach the harmonic aspects of canonic melody while offering a lively and enjoyable experience for both performers and audience.
