Well,

I'm excited about the Classical Ensemble. When I heard everyone playing Canon in D last year, I thought "Wow, we've got to do this again and bigger." I would love for the playing of "Canon in D" to be a yearly thing.

We will be doing 2 songs this year, Canon in D (Pachelbels Canon) and Air in G by Bach.

CANON IN D
The Canon in D parts, mp3s, and practice tracks are in the second post in this thread.

AIR IN G
This year I came across a great arrangement of "Air in G" by Bach. I'm pretty sure you'll recognize the piece as soon as you hear it. I've attached the Air in G Mp3 as well as Guitar Parts 1-4.

Attached:
Mp3 (at tempo)
Mp3 (Slow version to practice with)
Guitar 1 Practice Mp3
Guitar 2 Practice Mp3
Guitar 3 Practice Mp3
Guitar 4 Practice Mp3
Guitar Parts 1-4 PDFs

Here is the music for Canon in D.

Attached:
Canon in D.mp3
Canon in D (Slow Version).mp3
Canon in D Practice Tracks for each part
Canon in D PDF's for each part.

The rehearsal times and part assignments are the same as in the first message. ( I really don't care who is on what part and you are free to switch around. As long as there are enough players on each part then everything will be fine.)

Have fun working it up and I look forward to hearing it again this year.

Hi Steve,

I'd like to participate in this ensemble too, if you have room.

Thanks,

Tom

The function of the mere critic is of very subordinate usefulness. It is the doer of deeds who actually counts in the battle for life, and not the man who looks on and says how the fight ought to be fought, without himself sharing the stress and the danger."

Air on the G String--what a great piece! Thanks, Steve!

For you movie buffs, a little trivia: This is the music that was played as the villain Stromberg fed his double-crossing secretary to some sharks in "The Spy Who Loved Me." (Hopefully, we of the Gathering classical ensemble will not meet a similar fate.)

Maybe This is a dumb question but, do you want us to have classical guitar for the classical assemble?

Acoustic (steel string) guitar works fine; that's what we all played last year.
