William Walton: Two Pieces From Henry V (Score/Parts)

Books | String Orchestra

Publisher: Goodmusic
Composer: William Walton
Format: Sheet Music | Score and Parts
William Walton was asked to write the music to accompany the 1944 Olivier film of Shakespeare´s Henry V. These two pieces, which are scored for strings only, were included in both the Concert Suites put together by Sir Malcom Sargent and Muir Mathieson, but have achieved a position of their own as a pair of delicate string works.

The first is a Passacaglia and represents Falstaff´s death - ingeniously it is entitled "Passacaglia - The Death of Falstaff" - and the second entitled "Touch her soft lips and part" accompanies the scene where the soldiers are departing for France and bidding farewell to their lady-loves. This edition has been re-typeset but otherwise is not changed from the original edition published by Oxford University Press (now out of print). It has not been simplified and is not an arrangement.

        Got the full score and parts for both pieces of music. Just what I wanted.
        Score is a bit small compared to the music but can still be read without too much trouble.
