Cinderella

cinderella-for-string-quartet-cover

I have a new string quartet arrangement of Steven Curtis Chapman’s Cinderella. The viola tugs at the heart strings with the opening melody. By the end of the arrangement all of the parts have had a chance to play melody. It is available for immediate download here.
