Ancient Airs and Dances Suite #1 (Passo mezzo e Mascherada) by Ottorino Respighi
Arranged for flute choir by Dashner Long

Italian composer Respighi was fascinated with early lute music, studying in particular the transcribed works of Oscar Chilesotti.  Chilesotti transcribed several 16th and 17th century dances and airs for the flute, from which Respighi choose several to make three suites, each comprised of four movements.  Using modern harmonies and orchestration, he beautifully crafted these suites for chamber orchestra.  With a simple melodic line and rich orchestraion, Respighi's unique talent and skill are showcased in these spirited compositions.  This movement, Passo mezzo e Mascherada, is the fourth movement of his first suite.  There are two contrasting sections:  a fast paced passo mezzo and a light Italian 16th century secular choral song (villanella) or mascherada.

Scored for 5 C flutes, alto flute, bass flute, contrabass flute
