Weait - Couplets for double reed quartet (1'00) PDF

First score page of Weait - Couplets for 4 double reeds
SKU: 1203-pdf

A short work was composed for a group of high-school aged double reed players to rehearse with limited time and perform at a woodwind clinic. Rhythmically the parts use only quarter and eighth notes in cut time, but with a liberal scattering of rests within measures. The ranges are moderate for 2 oboes and 2 bassoons.

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

Page 6 of score to Weait - Chopsticks Variations for 4 double reeds.
SKU: 9113-pdf

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.

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.
