Variations on Good King Wenceslas (Tempus adest floridum) for viola and cello

Categories: , ,


The story of Good King Wenceslas was made into a Christmas carol using the Piae Cantiones “spring carol” melody
“Tempus adest floridum” (= now is the time for flowering).
I have made an instrumental duo version here in which each instrument has a turn at the tune or even at individual phrases in the tune.
Just for fun, one variation is in a harmonic minor mode and one is in 3-4 time.
