“String Quartet No. 1: King Arthur”

Greetings! You can now hear the demo of my first string quartet on SoundCloud 🙂 The score and parts are available on Sheet Music Plus. It’s a very long quartet because it chronicles the story of King Arthur. I invite you to check it out!

I wrote this string quartet then took the first three movements, orchestrated them, and wrote my first symphony. Here, you can hear all the movements and the whole story.

Movements:

1) A Land In Chaos

2) Prayer For Deliverance,
William Byrd’s “Kyrie” from “Mass for Four Vioces”

3) Coronation and Wedding Day Of Kind Arthur

4) Adventures For Good And The Quest For The Holy Grail

5) The Final Battle

6) The Isle Of Avalon, “Agnus Dei” by William Byrd 

7) The Adventure Continues, “What Child Is This/Greensleeves”  

“Arthur and Guinevere” by Danielle Rosaria 

Out they looked across the moorland, Arthur and his lady Queen
Guinevere surpassing lovely with her deep soft eyes of green. 

Long they looked as though the time for all the ages rested there
out across their ancient kingdom, out across the land laid bare. 

Wide and far their love extended, close at home their love bright shone,
ever new, both same and changing, was the love they called their own.
