Pat-a-Pan is a very rustic Christmas piece that is set in a round beginning with the highest voice and pyramiding down.  The percussive "drone" parts add a distinct color to this piece and this sort of  writing works well with various combinations of woodwind  instruments.  Ensemble parts can be played as follows: part 1-flute,oboe,clarinet; part 2-flute,oboe,clarinet; part 3-clarinet,altosax,F horn;  part 4-clarinet,alto sax,tenor sax; part 5-bass clarinet,bassoon,baritone sax.
