This is the pre-printed, paper version of the work. A PDF digital download is also available.
Tried and true selection for school concerts. The audience can sing along, but there are some amusing twist and turns to throw them off (a little bit!).
Settings of the Burgundian melody attributed to Bernard de la Monnoye (1641 – 1728). A Christmastime favorite.
Two dances, “Buckley’s Favorite Reel” and the “Saratoga Hornpipe” can be found in early 19th century collections of American dance music. The setting recalls the jubilant, foot-stomping, rhythmical drive of the country fiddlers, banjoists and washtub-bassists who played the music.
A march in 18th century style with some surprising use of traditional rhythms. Also available for 2Cl, Bn, 2Hn [7206A].
Music from the Ottawa River where rafts of lumber were floated to sawmills guided by men perched on the logs. A favorite of many quintets, it recalls the vibrant, outdoor life of the raftsmen. RECORDED on compact disc by the Aeolian Winds, IBS 1002. For flute, oboe, clarinet in B-flat, bassoon & horn in F.
Reflective ‘Etude’, lively ‘Scherzo’ with big horn cadenza.
Very handy for school concerts and makes a great 'ender' for any concert.
Quintets don't often get to play Renaissance music. A delightful, rhythmical madrigal.
