Performance Notes:
      Originally conceived as an arrangement for clarinet choir, I transcribed this overture in 2007 as a contrast to the typically upbeat peices usually present on a clarinet choir program. This overture is one of my favorites and I usually get goosebumps when simply listening to the opening section. As I adapted the arrangement for flute choir, I thought it would be pretty nice if I could emulate the horn quartet of the original orchestra version with a quartet of alto flutes and some additional help from the bass flute. Realizing that not every flute choir has four alto flutes, I arranged it with two compulsory alto flute parts, which are then divisi at certain points during the work. The lower divisi part of each of the two core alto flute parts is optional and has been cued into the 3rd and 4th C flute parts in the opening section. Later on, when the divisi alto flute parts return, they are doubled in octaves with upper parts and are not as importatn as in the opening. The contrabass flute part, while a nice addition, is optional and can be substituted with another bass flute, or omitted completely.
