flute choir score and parts

An original composition by F.R.C. Clarke (b.1931)
Dur: ca.8'15"

Bagatelle: ca. 3'00"
Elegy: ca. 3'00"
Scherzetto: ca. 2'25"

The ideal instrumentation for the Suite for Flute Choir is one piccolo player, eight C flutists, one or two alto flutists and one (or two) bass flutists. Additional players may be used by doubling the larger flutes and/or the C flute parts beginning with parts 3 and 4. It is best to avoid doubling the piccolo part. If a bass flute is not available, this lowest part may be played on the alto flute with the substitute part provided.
