Sylvan Suite - an original work in three movements for flute choir by John W. N. Palmer
Scored for Piccolo, 4 C Flutes, Alto Flute, Bass Flute and optional Contrabass Flute.
Includes score and parts.

While the composer has written several arrangements for this his flutist wife in the form of woodwind trios, quartets and quintets, the creation of Sylvan Suite is the honouring of a promise he made to her for an original work for her flute ensemble. Although most of John's creative work has been for the brass family, his approach for this suite found him thinking about the substance, wood, hence the piece's title.  He urges the performer to invoke thoughts of a forest or to conjure up an image of a glade of trees and to think about what might be happening somewhere within that world.
