Just like ordinary angels, Dark Angels sing as they wake up… But once they’ve reached a perfect cadence and had a wash, they are much more mischievous than your everyday angel. They dance, skip and stamp their way through their day, having lots of fun being just a little bit naughty as they grant your wishes and make your dreams come true.

Written with the mixed ability of a regional string orchestra in mind, “Dark Angels Dance” is crafted to be enjoyed by young pre-grade-5 musicians. The first violin part explores 3rd position in D major and D minor with easy shifts. While the double bass part does include some Grade 3 level accidentals, it does not venture too high and is accessible to early grade players. The middle string parts (cello, viola and 2nd violin) can all be played comfortably within first position. The challenge and enjoyment in performing this piece comes from the mischief – the young players are required to sing, to use a mix of pizzicato, arco and col legno - and the dance skips along through some very unusual time signatures. Filled with melodies that will haunt you day and night, “Dark Angels Dance” is a piece to be enjoyed by performers and audiences alike.
