‘Once in Royal David’s City’ (from our ‘I Saw Three Ships and other carols’ string quartet CD) is a majestic and traditional carol, here beautifully arranged for strings. All of the parts are fairly straightforward to play, so 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 eight pdf parts (1st violin, 2nd violin, viola, cello, double bass, optional harp and two full scores). The harp part is optional, meaning that the string orchestra arrangement has been composed to sound full and complete without the harp.
