MMTR005 Three Carols - Traditional/Monnoye, B.


1. Zither Carol
2. Rocking Carol
3. Pat-a-pan
Three very contrasting Christmas Carols here for early grade oboes. The first of the two traditional Czech tunes is the energetic Zither Carol,  followed by  the more gentle and sentimental Rocking Carol. The third carol is the more robust "Pat-a-pan" by Bernard de La Monnoye, first published in 1720. All three parts get a chance for a tune in this festive set, and the pieces are interesting to listen to and satisfying to play.
