David W Solomons
A folksy sequence of 4 movements (quite different from, and possibly more approachable than, my quartet!) for string quintet (2 violins, viola, 2 cellos).
All the movements can be heard on youtube at
(along with other string pieces)
The themes are taken from various pieces composed or arranged in earlier times by the composer, including a marvellously camp version of Ich bin e meidel in de joren (hear the sound sample: Camp David), Marie for shame - a song based on a poem by Ronsard about a young girl who should gather rosebuds while she may, Blue Boar Blue based on a song of student love.

The zip file contains scores and parts for all movements.
