Originally for 4 recorders, this piece was made famous in the brass world by several arrangements by members of the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble of England. The brilliant imitative writing lends itself very well to this new arrangement which has been set for 8 clarinets (set in 2 choirs of 4 clarinets each). Dramatic dynamic contrasts and "echo" writing make this a new found classic for easy clarinet choir.
