Heart of Gold (A Greensleeves Fantasy) is a fresh take on a traditional favorite, drawing its name from the lyrics of the original secular song, “Greensleeves was my delight, Greensleeves was my heart of gold.” The piece starts with an introduction that flows into the familiar poignant melody, using beautiful and unexpected harmonies for a contemporary sound. A solo violin and solo cello restate the melody against a gentle pizzicato accompaniment and the optional piano adds magic and enhances the orchestration throughout.
