The ancient tune PASSION CHORALE which first appeared as a hymn in 1613 is presented here as a string duet arrangement (for VIOLIN and CELLO). The familiar lyrics we know as “O Sacred Head, Now Wounded” were added sometime around 1656. Though over 300 years old, this song continues to add inspiration and contemplation to worship services during the season of Lent and Easter.

The melody is played by the VIOLIN throughout. An optional repeat is provided in case a longer musical selection is needed. All notes for both the VIOLIN and CELLO are playable in the first position making this arrangement an excellent choice for early-intermediate string players. The purchase price includes a 2-page combined score with both parts on each page plus separate 1-staff scores for the VIOLIN and CELLO (1 page each).

This arrangement is one of the 10 songs in the collection titled “Easy String Duets: Easter Hymns for Violin and Cello.”
