Menuet Pastoral
By Anthony St. Pierre March 2008
 
S A T B
 
 
The sustained low F in the bass lends a pastoral quality to this minuet & trio. The style might be described as 20th-century English pastoral. Despite chromatic notes, the moderate tempo makes this brief piece (3:45) quite accessible to intermediate players.

Performing on the ARS website recording: Takayo Shimoda(S); Anthony St. Pierre (A); Janos Ungvary(T); Scott Paterson(B).
