La Moresque, from Terpsichore (viola cello duo)
Title: La Moresque, from Terpsichore
Composer: Pierre-Francisque Caroubel, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Viola and Cello
Printout: 2 pages
Note: Because his business partner, Praetorius, published Terpsichore after Caroubel’s death, the latter’s contributions have been largely and unfairly overlooked. In this Morris tune, Caroubel uses an intriguing rising chromatic scale to harmonize an otherwise simple melody.
