'The Gardener' is based on an old English folk song called 'The Bloody Gardener', which was a traditional ballad detailing the betrayal of two young lovers by the boy's wicked mother. This haunting melody works beautifully on the cello, and its simple rhythms make it an accessible play.

This arrangement was specifically written for a mixed-level group, with the first cello part slightly more advanced (going up to 4th position). The second cello part has optional 2nd position and features both the main melody and counter melodies. The third cello part is the most elementary, remaining in first position.

Emma Butterworth is a composer for film and TV and also a successful Suzuki cello teacher. She has an intimate knowledge of how to write for strings, and has written and arranged a vast number of pieces for cellos and strings especially. All pieces have been played and performed.
