Yorkshire Wassail: Theme and variations for violin and cello (violin cello duo)
Title: Yorkshire Wassail: Theme and variations for violin and cello
Composer: traditional, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin and Cello
Printout: 2 pages
Note: Meter changes and modal harmonies keep this traditional tune ever-interesting. It’s a nice change of pace from the usual Christmas repertoire. The first variation uses drone-like open fifths, reminiscent of border pipes, in the violin to accompany the melody in the cello.
