‘Joseph est Bien Marie’ (from our ‘I Saw Three Ships and other carols’ string quartet CD) is a lesser known carol composed by Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1643-1704) for his ‘Messe de minuit pour Noël’ and here faithfully adapted for strings. All parts are fairly straightforward to play and are suitable for professional, student and amateur players alike.
Available in two packages, for string quartet or for string orchestra. The string quartet package contains five pdf parts (1st violin, 2nd violin, viola, cello and full score). The string orchestra package contains six pdf parts (1st violin, 2nd violin, viola, cello, double bass and full score).
