This is the voice and piano version of the song cycle for voice and orchestra “Emily’s Bees and Bells”. It consists of eight brief poems by the celebrated American poet Emily Dickinson (1830 – 1886) that mention bees or bells. The music supports Dickinson’s precise writing with bee-like buzzings, chimes and melodies reminiscent of her time. The moods are varied. One poem has two different settings and another, the final one, incorporates two versions by the poet. The poetry is used with the permission of Harvard University Press.

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”.

A printed version is available at SKU [6010B]
