    Default Winter's Tale 5 - free sheet music for mandolin trios

    Dear Mandolin Friends,

    Here is my fifth folio of free mandolin trio arrangements for winter. I included 6 carols this year, all of them beautiful and most not well-known. All but two are new arrangements I have not previously published. If you see any errors, please let me know.
    The collection is a little smaller than usual because I spent a lot of time putting out a new book, Evelynís Mandolin Trio Book, Vol 3, which is now available from Amazon. What about that cover (designed by my daughter Anna Castiglioni)? It has the headstock of a Pava mandolin with a bluebonnet inlay, courtesy of Pava Knezevic, Tom Ellis, and Cathy Pelosi. Texas was a lot in my thoughts when I put together this book. BLuebonnets are our sate flower. https://www.amazon.com/dp/1729727336

    If you would like to find the previous 4 Winterís Tale collections, there are links in this forum. I tried to provide them but did not succeed.

    Best wishes for a happy, healthful holiday season that brings you time with friends and family, joy, and contentment.

    Dear Mandolin friends,

    Gary, thank you very much for posting the links to the earlier books.

    I understand that some computers can't access the music this way, so I have put all 5 books in a Dropbox link. The Dropbox also has Winter's Tale 2 in several traspositions (cello, viola, Bb clarinet) and Winter's Tale 1 melodies in mandolin and guitar tab.

    Here is the link:

    Best regards,

    Thank you for your generosity! My friends and I have your 2015 and 2017 books, and are ready to purchase the 2018 as soon as they are back in stock. Our little trio plays exclusively from your books -- the arrangements are lovely.

    Many thanks, Evelyn -- I really enjoyed Winter's Tale 5. Lot's of great tunes! I've been tied up with other things, but have now finally got around to recording and uploading a few of these (plus a bonus one from your 2018 book). As usual, these are home recordings with me playing all tracks. However, we have also tried these with our mandolin group, and your original hornpipe The Humours Of Sinbad in particular was very popular with everybody -- great catchy tune!

    The Humours Of Sinbad:



    The Traveller Benighted In Snow:



    On A Cold Winter's Day:



    Es wird scho glei dumpa:



    I Wish My Love Were In A Mire:



    All tunes played on:

    Mid-Missouri M-0W mandolin
    1921 Gibson Ajr mandolin (Ceccherini bowlback on "Es wird scho glei dumpa")
    Vintage Viaten tenor guitar
    Suzuki MC-815 mandocello

    Thanks again, Evelyn!

    Thanks, Evelyn! I've been very busy and hadn't had a chance to visit mandolin cafe for a while and was very happy to see your 5th book of Winter's Tale. Another great collection! Your arrangements are excellent! Thank you for this wonderful gift!

    Thanks so much, Evelyn!!! I've just gotten my copy of book I and I LOVE it! My husband and I play them on recorders (badly!) and pennywhistle/fiddle/mandolin and then I use some of them with students. Book 3 is on its way.
    These are FANTASTIC!

    Here is another of my recordings from the Winter's Tale 5 collection: this is "Craig Ghuanach", better know as the tune to the "Mingulay Boat Song".

    I take the melody on mandocello the second time around.

    Mid-Missouri M-0W mandolin
    1921 Gibson Ajr mandolin
    Vintage Viaten tenor guitar
    Suzuki MC-815 mandocello

    I have just recorded a video of Astrid's Waltz from Winter's Tale 5 for my granddaughter Astrid Leia:



    As usual I am using my looper to play the trio (or as it includes also the guitar part quartet) together with myself.

    Thanks for the arrangements!
    It sounds really beautiful!

    Thank you as always Martin and Michael for the recordings; quality of these keeps getting better and better: these were particularly crystal clear and musical.
    And THANK YOU Evelyn for providing not just very nice music, but arrangements in 3 clefs so I can play my much-neglected mandocello along with my mandola friend and just about any fine mandolin player.
