Marche in D, from Cephale et Procris (Intermediate Strings)
Title: Marche in D, from the opera Cephale et Procris
Composer: Élisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre, arr. David Gable
Key: D Major
Meter: alla breve
Instrumentation: Violin 1; Violin 2; Violin 3/Viola; Cello; Contrabass (optional)
Note: So little music by women composers is accessible to young players that when I heard this march I knew it needed to be made available. The first violin part has some figures that lie best in second or third position. Other parts can be played entirely in first position.
