2007 – David’s Melody, for junior string orchestra. The first performance was on 05/07/08 by the  Lowry Strings Conducted by Colin Green

A short piece of about 4 minutes in length which would suit a junior string orchestra. Melodic and lush. It was written in memory of my good friend, David Shields, who is sadly no longer with us. David was a great recorder player and wonderful musician.

No.2- Standard: for Violins 1 and 2, Viola, Cello and Double Bass.  BUY AT SHEETMUSICDIRECT
