The Transcriptions Series series

Recital Music publish a wealth of original works for double bass alongside a popular, accessible and growing range of transcriptions for bassists of all ages and abilities. Most transcriptions published by Recital Music are by David Heyes, who has a successful and proven track record when arranging for double bass.

Charles Harford Lloyd (1849-1919) was an English composer and organist. He was a fairly prolific composer, primarily of church music, and was organist of Gloucester Cathedral, Christ Church Cathedral in Oxford and Eton College Chapel. Between 1887 and 1892 Lloyd taught organ and composition at the Royal College of Music in London and after his retirement from Eton was appointed organist of the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace.

Le Départ, originally for cello and piano, was first published in 1920 by Joseph Williams Limited (Great Portland Street, London), a year after the composer’s death. Typical of the salon and characteristic music of the early 20th-century, the piece is lyrical and accessible, transcribing well for the double bass.

This edition includes solo parts for violoncello (use piano accompaniment marked orchestral tuning) or double bass, playable in solo or orchestral tuning, and is a useful addition to the intermediate transcription repertoire.
