Bells Across the Meadows arranged for Three Flutes and Piano
- Staff Pick
“A great 'first time' trio!”
This interesting piece by the English composer Alfred Ketelby (1875–1959) has been skillfully arranged by Andrew Wyver for a group of developing flute players. The parts themselves are not too difficult with the F major key and a note range of two octaves giving a familiar look to the music. Unison rhythms also help, especially when negotiating the off-beat passages, and the piano accompaniment adds an extra level of security. The result is lovely and it will give the right group of players a real sense of achievement in performance. This is a very usable piece that you will return to frequently!
