Mr. Tollett (1695) - The Queen's Farewell in 3 Parts for 3 double reeds in 3 versions (1'00)

SKU: [6602A]

This three voice work was published in "The Sprightly Companion" by J. B. (probably John Banister) in London in 1695. Along with a four part "Queen's Farewell" by Jacques Paisable [6604C], it commemorated the passing of Queen Mary II (1662 - 1694) who died of smallpox. "The Sprightly Companion" is likely the first oboe tutor in the English language. "Mr. Tollet", the way the composer's name appears in the publication, is probably James Tollett who died in 1696.

Weait - Chopsticks Variations for double reed quartet (3'40)

SKU: [9113]

Chopsticks Varations is an hilarious setting of the famous piece for 2 oboes (or oboe & oboe d'amore), English horn and bassoon. It makes an excellent concert encore - especially if you've gone overboard with the "serious" stuff - and it is a proven hit at children's and senior citizen's programs. Parts are provided for all instruments and the score shows all instruments. This arrangement was originally published by BOCAL MUSIC as their BMC-121 Fantasy Variations on Chopsticks. We have revised it slightly and are publishing a new full score and parts.
