Published by Falls House Press
Duration: 12 minutes

Instrumentation:
6 C Flutes
2 Alto Flutes
Bass Flute

J. S. Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 was originally scored for three violins, three violas, three cellos and continuo, and is a concerto grosso – with each member performing alternately as part of the ensemble or as soloist. In this arrangement for flute choir it is advantagious to stage the nine flutists in three groups of three to achieve the best musical and visual effect (Group 1: Flutes 1,2,3; Group 2: Flutes 4,5,6; Group 3: Alto Flutes 1 and 2, Bass Flute). 

Optional parts for Group 3 are provided for ensembles that do not have access to two alto flutes or a bass flute. The optional parts allow the two alto flute parts to be performed on C flutes and the bass flute part to be performed on alto flute. If optional parts are employed, having all the Group 3 flutes play the optional parts is preferable, but it is also possible to mix original and optional parts as needed or desired.
