Songs that Celebrate Our Natural World
An anthology of English, Irish, and Scottish traditional music
selected and arranged by Dorothy Barth
Richard Doyle (1878): Under the Dock Leaves: An Autumnal Evening's Dream
The absorbing hours spent perusing, selecting, and arranging Celtic music has inspired numerous themes for my anthologies.
Green, is my sixth volume of duo arrangements and focuses on songs that celebrate our natural world.
The many songs whose titles contain references to hills, valleys, rivers, mountains, groves, and flowers
reflect the Celtic reverence for and delight in the beauty of their lands. Although many of these songs are hundreds of years old, their allure is especially relevant today as we struggle with environmental challenges that would have been unimaginable then.
These arrangements were conceived for recorder and violin but may also be played on flute and violin or two violins. In this volume, the suggested recorder range is indicated, but the adaptable recorder player may experiment with different ranges. We prefer the soprano recorder (which sounds an octave higher than written) on reels, jigs, and hornpipes and the tenor recorder (or alto recorder depending on range) for slower, lyrical pieces.
May the music accompany your celebration of our Earth.
A complete recording of Green: Songs That Celebrate Our Natural World is now available as a digital download from CDBaby as well as Amazon and iTunes. You can purchase either the complete album or individual tracks. Released 5/21/2015.
