Written by Sting, it’s possibly the Eva Cassidy version that really made this piece famous.
My arrangement, based on one I wrote for the Hampshire Guitar Orchestra, is styled on the Eva Cassidy version and includes the instrumental break in the middle.
It’s set for 3 guitars.
Guitar 3 plays Capo 7, to give a light and airy accompaniment.
Guitars 1 and 2 take it in turns to play the tune and a second accompaniment.
This is a very accessible version of a well-known and substantial piece.
I’ve left the choice of dynamics and fingering to you - the players - so that you can choose where on the neck you play, and the phrasing you add - just make it "yours" in performance.
I've also arranged this piece with different orchestrations...
- Fields of Gold for flute and guitar
- Fields of Gold for oboe and guitar (in a different key to suit the oboe)
