French Nativity Suite arranged for Flute Choir
- Staff Pick
“Works a treat!”
Unusual carols can often provide a good programme contrast in a Christmas concert and this lovely compilation works a treat. 'Il est Ne' is well-known and surprisingly has some swing-rhythm in the accompaniment, but the less familiar 14th century carol from Provence ‘Bring a Torch, Jeanette Isabella’ is handled simply. Pat-A-Pan is more of a challenge - upbeat with a 5/8 central section and complex ensemble writing which is as enjoyable to play as it is to listen to.
From the Publisher
Three lovely traditional Christmas carols are beautifully set and can be played separately or as a suite. These pieces each capture the magic of melody as well as the dance-like essence of this music.
