Recital Music publish a wealth of original works for double bass alongside a popular, accessible and growing range of transcriptions for bassists of all ages and abilities. Most transcriptions published by Recital Music are by David Heyes, who has a successful and proven track record when arranging for double bass.

Originally for piano, this piece amply demonstrates the lyrical and sonorous qualities of the bass quartet. Published in score format, with 4 scores included, this is an atmospheric and evocative miniature with opportunities for soulful and sonorous solo and harmony playing. Originally arranged for double bass quartet, this also lends itself well to the cello, bassoon or trombone quartets..

The simple Celtic melody is supported well with plaintive haunting harmonies, which create an atmosphere of quiet reflective thought. There are few technical difficulties in any of the parts.
