TR003 Two Northumbrian Tunes - Traditional

£14.99 – £17.99

1. The Waters of Tyne
2. Elsie Marley

The Waters of Tyne describes two lovers separated by the rough waters of the river Tyne.. a solo flute starts the melody from the back of the hall, gradually passing the tune to the rest of the group. Elsie Marley is a lusty dance depicting an alewife of dubious reputation, and features energetic tutti sections interspersed with various versions and variations of the folk tune. This pair of pieces would suit a group of intermediate to advanced players.
