Haydn’s Lost Chorale The Abbey (Grade 2.5-3) for String Orchestra by Keith Sharp

Haydn’s Lost Chorale is a musical piece written for a string orchestra that includes violin 3 (treble viola), violin, and an optional piano accompaniment. Haydn’s St. Anthony’s Chorale inspires this composition and features a revised version of The Abbey. It consists of a dotted rhythm and quasi-classical textures and includes singing themes.

Here is the composer’s introduction to the title:

“At last, the end of my quest was near! Surely the hidden crypt was within metres? Crawling through a slimy, cobwebbed, rat-infested tunnel, the growing sense of anticipation was overwhelming. An intriguing mystery was about to be solved. Would the infamous parchment still remain within the monk’s, by now skeletal, grasp? Its discovery would confirm my suspicion - Brother Festus was guilty of stealing the coveted choral extract from the great master Haydn, nearly 200 years ago! There was a chance that Haydn’s “lost chorale” may finally be heard…..” (Diary extract - Summer holiday adventures, 1994).
