Music from the Ottawa River where rafts of lumber were floated to sawmills guided by men perched on the logs. The arrangement recalls the vibrant, outdoor life of the raftsmen in a setting for the complete woodwind choir. An earlier version was performed by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra at children’s concerts to demonstrate the woodwind instruments. For Pic, 2Fl, 2Ob, EH, 2Cl, BCl, 2Bn, CBn, 2ASx, TSx, BarSx.
The arranger pouts while stating, “This arrangement can be performed without the English horn and contrabassoon parts.”
