In the Bleak Midwinter by Gustav HolstArranged for Flute Choir by Ann Cameron PearceIncludes score and partsInstrumentation:6 C FlutesAlto Flute (alternate for Flute 5)Bass Flute (alternate for Flute 6)Chimes (optional - included in Flute 3)E-flat Flute (optional - included in Flute 2)
This arrangement makes possible several different combinations of instruments. It can be performed on all C flutes or with the addition of alto and bass flutes on part 5 and 6 (as indicated). The utilization of an Eb flute during the second half of the second flute part provides a special hollow timbre to the ensemble that is very effective. Also, the substitution of handchimes for flute 4 during the second and fourth sections of the piece adds another dimension of resonance to the chords and descant. Careful listening will facilitate proper balance.
