Weait - COUNT! Dracula for 4 bassoons (2'40) PDF

First score page to Weait - COUNT! Dracula for 4 bassoons.
SKU: 1212-pdf

Composed to provide some practice in reading and playing sub-metrical rhythms: including 8ths, 16ths, triplet 8ths and a few triplet quarter notes. All rhythms appear on the beat and in syncopated form. The four parts swap soprano, alto, tenor and bass roles. The ranges are from low B-flat (B flat 2) to F above middle C (F4). The music follows a 16 measure blues progression throughout. Far from being a dull study piece, it presents a lively, "hot" result.

This is the downloadable version of the work. A pre-printed, paper version is also available.

First score page to 2. The Jolly Raftsmen from Weait - Two Canadian Tunes for Nine Winds.
SKU: 7407 REV-pdf

These are arrangements of two melodies found in "Come 'A Singing Canadian Folk Songs" by Marius Barbeau, et al published in Ottawa by the King's Printer, 1974. 1. 'My Lonely Heart' was collected from Mme. Bolduc of Quebec City in 1918. 2. 'The Jolly Raftsmen' is a lumberman's song from the Ottawa River. This version of 'Jolly Raftsmen' is the first one I made. Later, I set it for 12 woodwinds as 'The Merry Raftsmen' [7905] and for woodwind quintet 'The Jolly Raftsmen' [9513]. The work is dedicated to my college room-mate, the Canadian composer and painter, Donald Coakley.

Weait - Four Fanfares for woodwind quintet (Total duration 2'10) PDF

SKU: 1012-pdf

These fanfares were composed at different times for different ensembles. Fanfares 1 and 2 were written for OBOHIO to begin concerts by that double reed quartet. We played them offstage before entering. Tavern Fanfare was written for a wind octet to play a concert at, you guessed it, a tavern! The Seven Eight Fanfare was composed in 1998 for no particular ensemble or event.

One or more fanfares can be performed as encores, as concert openers, or as interludes between longer pieces. They don't have to be performed in numerical order.
