Au Matin, Opus 23 composed by Benjamin Godard (1849-1895)
Arranged by Gordon Jones for Flute Choir; 6 C flutes, Alto flute, and Bass flute

Benjamin Godard won a reputation as a composer of lightweight, yet immensely popular piano "salon" music, of which Au Matin is a prime example. He did write some more substantial orchestral and operatic works, though they are rarely performed.

A performance of this piece should reflect the general lyrical style - a good deal of dynamic range and a flexible approach to tempi.
