Hymn Melodies For Two Violas, Volume II is a direct transcription of Hymn Melodies For Two Violins and is exactly a fifth lower in pitch. The same titles are included as those in Volume I, having three verses of each hymn. The second viola part increases in difficulty — easy, medium, then hard.
Volume II is substantially more challenging than Volume I. All third verses contain running 16th note passages, using 3rd and 4th position. This volume is geared for students in at least the end of Suzuki book 5 or the beginning of book 6 or for students studying perhaps the Bach Double or Telemann Concerto. Challenges all levels of players and creates a marvelous crescendo effect for the listener, whether it is in a living room or a church service!
