Steep and Rugged Pathway  Pack image
Violin 1, Violin 2, Viola (or Violin 3 or Cello), Cello , Bass (or Cello)

Not for ever in green pastures
Do we ask our way to be;
But the steep and rugged pathway
May we tread rejoicingly.
(L.M.Willis, c.1860)

There are three extra parts, not shown in the score. Either or both of Violin 3 and Cello alternative to Viola (in tenor clef, for one or more advanced players) may support or replace the Viola part. The Cello alternative to Double Bass may, in the same way, support or replace the Double Bass part. In one way or another the Double Bass part should be played and not simply omitted. The music will, of course, sound its very best in the instrumentation given in the score, but a good result is also quite possible with the modifications described above.
THE STEEP AND RUGGED PATHWAY could become the first item in a short, three-movement suite of this composer’s pieces, all in the Goodmusic Concert Capers series, as follows: The Steep and Rugged Pathway - GMCC025 (A minor; sturdy, determined), Short Passacaglia - GMCC024 (D major; calm, thoughtful), On the Move - GMCC022 (G major; bright, energetic)
Duration: 2½ minutes
A PACK comprises one full score and strings 4/4/3/4/2 (plus similar numbers of any alternative parts) totalling 25 parts.
