Patapan - 4 guitars

4th October 2019

Patapan - 2 easy arrangements for 4 guitars

First published in 1720, this well-known carol by Bernard de la Monnoye invokes the sounds of a fife (the lyrics ture-ture-lu) and drum (pata-pata-pan),

There are two arrangements in the same download - each has three verses arranged in three different styles (with percussion, in choral form, and in a Hurdy-Gurdy style).

One arrangement gives each player a fixed role. The other moves the three accompaniments around between Guitars 2-4.

So this arrangement suits a novice quartet or a mixed ability quartet, all in one edition...


You can hear a snippet and see some of the score on the SMP website
