Carols for Two for Flute Duet
- Staff Pick
“Excellent Carol arrangements!”
Everyone will enjoy this great festive selection which has been arranged to develop playing skills too. This might involve passing the tune around in The Holly and the Ivy, counting in Gaudete, playing in a round in In Dulci Jubilo and tonguing in Patapan. As the music all looks very friendly on the page this will appeal to those looking to improve duet playing, a pair wanting to put something together quickly for an impromptu concert or simply a festive treat between friends. A small but significant step away from playing in close harmony throughout, you'll probably use this book forever!
From the Publisher
Four traditional carols, arranged for two flutes. First, a meandering setting of The Holly and the Ivy where the tune weaves between the two players. This is followed by a robust version of the medieval Gaudete Christus Natus, which becomes more ornate towards the end. In Dulci Jubilo is lyrical with a descant for the accompaniment in the second verse and in Patapan the accompanying part mimics the drum rhythm throughout.
Performance duration (approx): 4'20
