Fickle Folks arranged by Art Lambert

Scored for 5 C flutes (one doubling on piccolo), 2 altos and one bass.

A trio of traditional British folk songs with lilting melodies are blended into a joyous lively medley which belies the common lyrical theme of love left behind. The arrangement introduces a contrapuntal piccolo obligato, counter melodies and syncopation to achieve a cross rhythmic effect. 

Traditional British folk songs included: Early One Morning, Bobby Shaftoe, The Girl I Left Behind Me
