‘Noel Nouvelet‚Äô¬†(from our ‚ÄòIt Came Upon The Midnight Clear and other carols‚Äô string quartet CD) is an¬†energetic French carol dating back to the 1500s and was originally a New Year carol. It is here given an invigorating and exciting makeover which will be ideally suited to an encore item in any Christmas concert. The parts are of advanced difficulty but will be a must for professionals and students and great for amateur players who enjoy a challenge.
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.
