I am delighted to announce the arrival of my new CD ! 'Les Cerisiers' is the French for 'The Cherry Trees' and the title is inspired by the magnificent cherry blossom which blooms on our trees every year in our garden in The Dordogne. It is also inspired by the first track of the disc, 'The Sakura Variations' which is a piece based on the Japanese folk song 'Sakura' which also means 'cherry blossom'.

 I am deeply proud of the album as it contains four of my own new compositions for guitar. It also has my own original arrangements of Celtic and Spanish folk songs, such as The Water is Wide, The Wild Mountain Thyme and Cielito Lindo, heard here for the first time.

These tracks are presented alongside much-loved favourites of the classical and Spanish guitar repertoire, including Asturias by Albeniz, Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring by J S Bach and La Paloma by Sebastian Yradier.

If you would like to order 'Les Cerisiers' as a gift for someone, I would be happy to dedicate and sign individual discs to the person of your choosing. Just message me!
'Les Cerisiers' is available at €13 per disc with €2 post and packaging. 
'Les Cerisiers' is also available as a digital download from all major digital music platforms. Just search 'Dan Jones – Les Cerisiers'.

This digital download is the score and parts for eight guitars in a mixed-ability arrangement of the beautiful song Campana Sobre Campana. It is sung at Christmas in Spanish-speaking countries. It is ideal for Christmas concerts or for any other event. This arrangement allows you to bring together, stimulate and challenge all of your pupils/guitarists: from relative beginners playing mainly open strings to those preparing for advanced examinations.

You can listen to a recording and view elements of the score and parts here:

A part is prepared for bass guitars (in bass clef) and doubled by a guitar playing from the treble clef without inverting the harmony. Guitar 6 is very simple and optional. The arrangement has a truly contrapuntal, independent bass part (no more uninteresting bass-lines) and plenty of melodic playing for the inner parts. The score and parts are fingered where required and without page-turn difficulties. 

You will receive an email from 'mrsite.comsales' which will, in turn, lead you to the download.

The Hyon Do Fantasia is a composition for four guitars. It is a fantasy on the Icelandic folk song with the same name. The music undergoes processes of counterpoint including canon, inversion and diminuition. It is harmonised modally and explores avenues of polyrhythm. It is suitable for more-experienced players yet certainly possible for the committed student. The download includes a full score, leader's notes and individual parts. Guitar three is for a guitar with a capo and a transposed part is provided. The bass part is provided in both the bass and treble clefs. A film of a performance will be uploaded soon.
