Two volumes containing well-crafted arrangements and original compositions, presented in chronological order, from the 16th century right up to the present day. Includes contrasting styles, from Louis Couperin to Giles Swayne and William Byrd to Gavin Bryars.
What the pieces have in common is that they are short, easy and melodic....These works will appeal to a wide age range.... Inquisitive students may use these songs as an opportunity to learn about new genres of music, like Polish or Estonian folk music.... Bowing and articulations are included, but fingerings are left to the player.--Aaron Germain, for STRINGS (February 2011)

Contents: * pieces listed in the new Double Bass syllabus at Grades 4 and 5 - * a range of repertoire from the sixteenth century to the present day, from madrigals to musicals - * newly-commissioned pieces, as well as contemporary works published here for the first time - * well-crafted arrangements that provide opportunities to practise the keys, note-ranges, and fingering patterns found at Grades 4 and 5.
