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”.

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.
