The Transcriptions Series series

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 transcribed for Bass-Fest 98, this updated version for double bass octet has become a firm BIBF favourite and has been performed at Bass-Fest each year.

Two quartets work together to create one of the most joyful and exuberant of Baroque choruses andthis would make a great end to any massed bass concert. It has already been performed throughout Europe and America and utilises the entire range of the double bass with enough rhythmic invention and counterpoint to keep everyone counting!

Not one for the purists, but popular with players and audiences alike.
