A moderately easy arrangement of this traditional tune, which is also popularly known as the Christmas carol, 'What Child is This?' Created by Lloyd-Butler for her students at the Berkeley Carroll School in Brooklyn, NY, the violin/flute part consists mainly of the straight melody, and is slightly easier than the piano part. The piano parts consists almost entirely of moving sixteenth notes, bordering on a perpetual motion exercise, with patterns that fit the hand well but create striking colors with the surface dissonances and the contrasting chords outlined in the two hands : think 'Scenes from Childhood' crossed with 'Mikrokosmos.'
Separate flute part included.
