The Renaissance Album for Four C FlutesTranscriptions for 4 C Flutes by David H. BaileyIncludes score and partsFINALIST in the 2000 & 2001 NFA Newly-Published Music CompetitionThe Renaissance Album fills several gaps in the literature for flute ensembles. There is much music available from the Baroque, Classical, Romantic and 20th Century periods of music history, but very little from the Renaissance. This large album of 17 quartets covers practically the entire Renaissance and is a valuable resource for school and college ensemble libraries, as well as amateur and professional flute choirs. The polyphonic compositonal techniques of the Renaissance are unlike those of any other period in musical history and will offer a great programming contrast to the more widely known compositions of the Baroque, Classical and Romantic eras.Contents:Tsaat een meskin (Obrecht)Rorate coeli desuper (Isaac)Zwischen berg und tiefem tal (Isaac)Instrumental canzona (Isaac)Tu pauperum refugium (des Pres)Ave Maria (des Pres)Ricercare del 12 tono (Gabrieli)Hesterna die (Verdelot)Sicut cervus (Palestrina)Alla riva del Tebro (Palestrina)Exurge, Domine (de Kerie)Bon jour, mon coeur (di Lasso)O vos omnes (de Victoria)Passamezzo antico (Ammerbach)What if I never speed (Dowland)
