A beautiful Celtic "tone piece." The melody may be a bit repetitive. Light counterpoint, mostly diatonic to G major.

AISI Level - 5/10

AQ Level - 7/10

Interest Allocation - Melody only occurs in Vln1 and Vlc. Sometimes other sections get countermelodies, sometimes they get harmonies.

Key area: G Major (Mostly diatonic, 1 chromatic walking line at the end in the Vlc/DB

LH: No shifting, no very fast lines, mostly diatonic. Should be relatively easy

Intonation and Balance:
~ Rich melodic layering and/or harmonic layering makes for some work.
~ Soli passages (i.e. unison passages) must be in tune.

~ No slurs, and détaché throughout
~ dynamic shaping and tone quality are the main issues

Tone and Expressivity:
~ The slow lyrical nature of this piece would benefit from a high degree of bow control, and vibrato.

Rhythm & Texture:
~ Polyphonic passages may prove problematic, but the polyphony is mostly consonant.

Meter: 4/4

Tempo: Slowly @ q=52

Road Map: None.
