Flowing and lyrical, this flexible flute ensemble arrangement is perfect for flute quartets and choirs of all levels. Its core is a flute quartet of approximately level two or three (late middle school/high school), which may be performed with no low flutes or expanded to include alto and bass flutes. In addition, a special beginning flute part is included. By including your beginning flutists in your flute choir experience, you will introduce them to ensemble playing in a whole new way, and they will naturally start to imitate some of the phrasing and articulation they hear from the experienced players around them. In my own studio, I have had immeasurable benefits as a result of this practice. While beginners may not explicitly have been taught all of the rhythms and markings included in this piece, since their part is always played by someone else they will learn them quite easily. I find that beginners who have been playing in my studio for approximately 4-6 months are ready to join in with this piece.This arrangement opens with an imitative chord building sequence, then moves directly into the melody supported by a rhythmic, choir-inspired background. Syncopated rhythms and quarter note triplets are used to add interest, and each part has a moment to shine. The texture is mostly full throughout with some striking contrasts in two sections when the low flutes drop out, allowing legato melodic lines to really shine through. It starts in D Major and ends in F Major, with a range of low C to F above the staff. Though it is easy enough for a professional group to prepare in one rehearsal, it provides opportunities for expressive and intonation work that will benefit any flute choir or small ensemble and is a wonderful choice to stretch younger flute groups who may be more comfortable only in flat keys. The hauntingly beautiful ending is sure to induce sighs in the audience.Parts:Flute 1Flute 2Flute 3Flute 4/Bass Flute (Bass Flute optional)Alto Flute (optional)Beginning Flute (optional)See more arrangements by Rebecca Bogardus at
