Hymn Melodies For Violin and Viola, Volume II
46 Pages, 15 Arrangements
Hymn Melodies For Violin and Viola, Volume II contains 15 very well-known Christian hymns, all written for Viola and Violin! The Violin part has three verses of difficulty — easy, medium, then hard.
Volume II is substantially more challenging than Volume I for the violist. All third verse harmony parts contain running 16th note passages, using 3rd and 4th position. This volume is geared for violists in at least the end of Suzuki book 5 or the beginning of book 6 or for students studying perhaps the Marcello and Bach Sonatas. Many third verse melody parts go up an octave; so, the violinist should be able to shift to 3rd position.
It is an awesome, multi-purpose kind of volume. Try using it to (1) help students improve their reading skills, (2) share music at church services or (3) simply enjoy your love of hymns on your instrument with your friends!
