Price £7.50

Three characteristic and accessible pieces for the intermediate bassist and described by the composer as "an occasional piece written to celebrate a friend and student's award." The choice of the three dances echo the award - M-B-E - and offer music of great charm and sincerity with accompaniments which are both simple yet supportive. Written in a tonal and traditional style, the MBE Suite offers much in terms of musical and technical worth.

Christopher Field studied with Juliet Cunningham and Diana Fryer. He began teaching the double bass in 1964 and has written numerous small pieces for teaching purposes some of which have, over the years, appeared in the graded syllabuses of the major examination boards. Primarily a singer, he has also transcribed arias and songs for double bass and piano.
