This instrumental arrangement of the traditional Irish song 'Star of the County Down' consists of the original melody, a high harmony part and a low harmony part, and chords for guitar, piano or any other chordal instrument (e.g. organ or accordion). It is scored for three violins, but could be played by a group of other instruments that fit the ranges of each part (e.g. flutes could play the top part as it doesn't go very low). As well as the original melody there is a middle 8 part composed by Georgia Nettleton.

As you can hear on the recording, the tune can be played with either or both harmony parts, so it would be suitable for use as a violin duet, trio, or for a fiddle orchestra or larger violin group.

*NEW!* This download now also includes bonus scores for string quartet. I have added a cello part to each tune, and provided the viola part as either alto clef (viola) or treble clef (violin 3). There is also an alto clef version of the cello part up an octave for a viola to play if needed. The string quartet score includes individual instrumental parts.

PLEASE NOTE: the recordings and midi files included are just for the violin trio arrangement. The string quartet score is a bonus item which was added later and has not been recorded.
