Weait - The London Waits for 2 Oboes & 2 Bassoons (1'42) PDF

First score page to "The London Waits" for 2 oboes & 2 bassoons.
SKU: [6010B - pdf]

I first arranged the melody for woodwind quintet in 1960. This version for 2 oboes and 2 bassoons is almost the same as that one. This anonymous tune appeared in “Apollo’s Banquet”, published in 1669. The “waits” were town musicians and the term also applied to street singers of Christmas carols. Sometimes specific tunes represented their towns, hence “The London Waits”. The melody is more recently known as a Christmas carol entitled “Past 3 O’Clock” on a Cold, Frosty Morning”.

Weait - Little Duck for Bassoon and 'Cello or 2 Bassoons (1'41) PDF

Page 3 of score to Little Duck
SKU: [7711-pdf]

Little Duck for bassoon and 'cello is one of the short duets that Christopher Weait and Margaret Barstow Weait performed at children's and school concerts. The music is drawn from "Roundelays / Danses à la Ronde" by Marius Barbeau et al (Ottawa: National Museum of Canada, 1963) wherein the melody is entitled "The Lame Duck / Petite boiteuse" (p.37). It makes a charming encore.

The piece can easily be played by 2 bassoons.

Weait - Dialogues for Oboe and Clarinet (5'30) PDF

First score page for Discussion in Weait Dialogues for oboe and clarinet
SKU: [1702-pdf]

Dialogues for Oboe and Clarinet was composed in a somewhat conservative style in 2017. The 3 movements are: Discussion (2'08), Deliberation (1'51) and Debate (1'28). Discussion is lively and rhythmical with jazz inspired solo passages for each player. Deliberation is a reflective lament. Debate is an argument in which the clarinet's melody is played in reverse by the oboe. Both instrument also invert their melodies perhaps to confuse their opponent. There are no extreme ranges for either instrument or non-traditional rhythmic or notational symbols.
