  1. […] “Gabriel’s Oboe” written by Italian composer Ennio Morricone is the main theme for the 1986 film The Mission. This is one of the pieces that is most often requested to be played during a wedding ceremony. It is originally played on the oboe. I have arranged it for cello in the same key as the original – “D”, which suits the cello as the open strings can be utilized to great effect in the harmonies. The use of the open string double stops also helps to keep the melody in tune. In the final phrase there is use of left hand pizzicato to strengthen the peak of the melody. I have made all bars of equal length (the original has a couple of bar length changes) at the end to give a cohesive and clear rhythm. You can use Rubato and pauses at your musical discretion! This piece is also available in the ebook Wedding Music for Solo Cello […]

  2. […] have just released my first in a series of books of wedding music for solo cello.  This will help all you cellists do that solo wedding gig. You know we all get asked to do that […]

    I bought this book just to get Ilse’s arrangement for Gabriel’s Oboe – I wasn’t the least disappointed! I like all the arrangements in this book. This book and Ilse’s “Irish Airs for Solo Cello” will keep me occupied for the foreseeable future. Also Ilse has lots of mp3’s and youtube videos which help me a lot in interpretation. I am new to Irish music interpretation and some of the ornamental styles and motifs are new. Thanks Ilse!
