If Thou Be Near  

Gottfried Heinrich Stolzel   Arranged by Carrie Lane Gruselle
Grade 2.5

This treasured Baroque aria provides young string players with an opportunity to develop beautiful tone, vibrato and intonation in the key of B-flat. Solemn and stately, the melodic phrases are shared between the upper strings, while the cello and bass experience the responsibility of the basso continuo, making each note a pearl of musical beauty while setting the foundation for the harmonies in the inner voices.
