Patapan - 4 guitars

Patapan - Guitar Quartet

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.

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