The three Cello pieces played at the Royal Wedding at Windsor Castle 2018 - here arranged for cello & guitar:
No 1 - "Sicilienne by Maria-Theresia von Paradis
No 2 - "Apres un Reve" by Gabriel Faure
No 3 - "Ave Maria" by Franz Schbert
The key has been changed by a semitone for the Sicilienne from Eb to E major, because Eb is the worst key for guitar. Surprisingly the fingerings are the samejust as if the hand sits on a short neck!
The Ave Maria has been arranged in A major to suit the guitar without increasing the difficulty for the cello, in fact making it slightly easier.
The key C minor for the "Apres un Reve" has been kept according to the cello transcription by Pablo Casals.
An enjoyment for both players!
