‘While Shepherds Watched their Flocks by Night’ (from our ‘I Saw Three Ships and other carols’ string quartet CD) has been arranged in order to bring out its charming, gentle feel. The arrangement is fairly straightforward to play, with some double stopping occurring in the viola part. It is 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, 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. As such, there are two full scores provided, one with and the other without the optional harp part.
