Two pieces for guitar trio or guitar orchestra by Richard Shearing that will suit players of around grade 3 to 4 standard looking for something original and rhythmically interesting to play.
Selly Oak is in a minor key and is reminiscent of renaissance lute pieces. Its themes get passed around and there is plenty to keep everyone interested. Five Bells Sounded is in 5/4 time and contains funky cross rhythms in a pop-style harmony. It also makes a perfect companion piece for any ensemble who is also learning Lalo Schifrin’s Mission: Impossible theme.
