Melanie Thorne's arrangement of this classic Faure work has been written in A minor for four C flutes.  Flutes 1 and 2 carry most of the melody, although all parts contain moments of rhythmic and melodic interest.  The arrangement is quite easy to put together.  Bar numbers are included in the bars rest to assist with counting (which is particularly helpful for younger players) and page turn are placed conveniently.  The tune is always placed at a louder dynamic which again is helpful for less experienced performers.  Textural changes make the arrangement interesting and should provide challenges for all parts.  Overall this is a great arrangement, suitable for student flute choirs.
