Charles Callahan’s “Celtic Prelude” is the composer’s setting for string orchestra of the first movement of his well-known “Celtic Suite for Organ.” Based on an original tune composed in the Celtic spirit, the prelude elaborates on the tune’s graceful simplicity through a traditional tonal harmonic setting with the thematic materials shared among the voices. The introductory measures may be performed by solo players in each section, or the entire work can be played by quintet or quartet alone. The prelude is a welcome addition to the literature for middle school or high school string orchestra (Grade 3) and is also suitable repertoire for church ensembles.
