Violin Quartet - Christmas Music
Jolly Old St. Nicholas - $4.00
Here is a theme and variations version of Jolly Old St. Nicholas for violin quartet.
Easy to play and easy to listen to. A perfect piece for beginning groups and players. The mood is smooth, subdued and relaxed throughout, with a light swing section at the end.
To me, this piece sounds both plaintive and wistful, and is a nice contrast to other 'friskier' Christmas numbers.
