Adagio and March from the "Occasional Oratorio"By George Frideric Handel / arr. Vernon Leidig String Orchestra Conductor Score Grade: 2 Item: 00-5686S
Another beautiful sounding and playable arrangement from the masterful pen of Vernon Leidig. Studients will enjoy the rich sonorities of the Adagio and rhythmic drive of the March. Rhythms are straightforward and range is limited to first position with more advanced fingering options. It is in the key of D major with a brief modulation to B minor giving some an opportunity to deal with A-sharps, etc. This would be an excellent selection for a middle school/elementary string festival.
