Reviews...

“..the tune moves around to each player and none of the arrangements are difficult, most are in 1st position with a few passages requiring 2nd or 3rd position. With a little practise you could be ‘Lord of the Strings’. Highly recommended.”
- Dr. Vidulich, President,
Australian & New Zealand Viola Society Journal, September 2000

“This collection shows considerable attention to detail...These deserve to find their way to all the string quartets who perform non-classical music. The treasure trove of great Irish tunes is wide and deep, and many a popular chestnut is here. They are designed with the advanced player in mind both in the difficulty of execution and in the ensemble writing, although I could imagine a solid intermediate player having a go at them. Brava!”
