Celebratio by Karl Jenkins
Arranged for flute ensemble by Robert Rainford
Includes score and parts
Instrumentation : piccolo, optional G treble flute, 4 flutes, alto flute, bass flute, (optional contralto flute, contrabass flute, subcontrabass flute)
This is an arrangement of a short organ piece. It opens with short, driving ostinato figures in the lower parts, with a bright and exuberant theme in the highest parts. This then changes to a slightly more relaxed and singing middle section, which builds through a very short syncopated section to a full throated reprise of the first section. The piece ends with a fanfare for all the flutes! With optional parts for just about every member of the extended flute family, and the simpler parts for the lower flutes, this is a great concert item for any flute choir.
