Product Description


Christina Perri’s popular song is a wedding favourite all over the world. I arrange songs for a wedding quartet and this is often chosen by the bride and groom for their special day. If you would like to watch a professional performance of this piece, visit my channel by typing Skinny Black Dogs, Capriccio Quartet, A Thousand Years, into Youtube. This arrangement is 4 mins long and in B flat major. It is not the easiest of keys for strings but neither is it the hardest. It needs lots of vibrato, especially for the first violin, and subtlety from the inner parts to make sure they are heard but do not overpower the melody. The excerpt is from the instrumental section in which I exercised a little creativity! I would think players would need to be ABRSM Grade 7 to be able to play this well, but I could be wrong! Send me a phone recording via Facebook. I would love to hear young people play this!
