Catalogue no.: Q2002-2
These four folksongs for string quartet are ideal for school students at intermediate level: short, easy and fun to play. They were written in 1998 for Summers’ friends and family to play at concerts around the composer’s home in Suffolk, UK. Summers was born in 1973, and started composing aged eight, going on to study Cambridge University and the Royal Northern College of Music.
The four songs are: Lady Maisry; Sheep shearing song; Did you see the dark-haired boy; Sej, dinom-dánom.
