Stars And Stripes Forever by John Philip Sousa transcribed and arranged by Manley Mallard ($15.00)[wpecpp name=”Stars and Stripes” price=”15.00″ align=”right”]
This arrangement of “Happy Birthday” for 2, 3 or 4 guitars is presented here with the statement of the tune and three variations. Each variation gets progressively more interesting with the third variation modulating from E to A and the fourth written in a jazz/swing style, returning to the key of E. The style of scoring used in this edition – putting the first and third guitars on the first staff and the second and fourth on the second staff – makes the music extremely versatile as it can be played as a quartet but also works very well as a trio or duo, for more advanced guitarists. ($5.00)[wpecpp id=3836]
Four Wedding Songs” for 2, 3 or 4 guitars are the standard versions that are often heard at weddings. The arrangements are intended for four players but will also work quite well for just two or three players. This edition is arranged so that, with the exception of Guitar 1, all players stay in first position. To make reading easier, each player plays only a single line: Guitarists 1 & 3 share a staff and Guitarists 2 & 4 share a staff. This also allows the arrangements to be played as duets or trios.

Hymns for 2, 3 or 4 Guitars arranged by Glenn Caluda, Joseph Mayes and Manley Mallard. Easy to intermediate ($30.00)[wpecpp id=”2791″ align=”right”]

Ave Maria by Josquin Des Pres and arranged for Guitar Quartet by Joseph Mayes ($14.00)[wpecpp id=”2374″]

“Ave Maria” by Josquin Des Pres was originally composed as a motet. It is regarded by many as Josquin’s most famous motet and it is one of the important vocal works of the 15th century. This motet became extremely popular in the 16th century, and appeared at the head of the first volume of motets ever printed. This composition represented a new open style featuring early imitative counterpoint and short duets between pairs of voice parts. These innovations added to its acclaim as one of the most influential compositions of its era. This arrangement is well suited for advanced High School or College groups.

More Christmas for 2, 3 or 4 Guitars originated as a small collection of ensemble pieces for use with beginning guitar classes. Over time the idea grew into the present two volume collection. Our goal with these arrangements is to give guitarists, teachers, and ensemble coaches a trove of moderately easy pieces from which to choose whenever Christmas music is desired. The arrangements are intended for four players, but will also work quite well for just two or three players. The edition is laid out so that 1) there are no page turns during a piece and 2) except for the Guitar 1 part, the players stay in first position. There are only single lines for each player except for a few natural harmonics. To make reading easier, Guitarists 1 and 3 share a staff as do Guitarists 2 and 4. This also allows the arrangements to be played as duets by more advanced players, all while keeping the parts interlocked. For most of the pieces we have given not only the traditional harmonies but a modest variation for variety and interest: players are invited to customize these arrangements in any way they would like, such as adding other instruments.We are including the name of the arranger (Glenn Caluda, Joseph Mayes and Manley Mallard) for each piece, but would like you to know that this project was a group effort, collaboration we three enjoyed.
