Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane
Arranged for Solo Alto Flute and 3 C Flutes by Ricky Lombardo
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas is a delightful treat for a holiday program and excellent opportuniy to give an alto flutist the spotlight on a Christmas classic at your next winter concert. This sentimental favorite is sensitive and written with limited technical demands. Dynamic markings play an extremely important role in the performance of this arrangement. It is imperative accompanying flutes play at, or below, written dynamics to make certain the soloist can be easily heard. Although C Flutes do take the melody at times, emphasis is on the alto flute as a soloist.
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas is a great chance to show off the beauty of the alto flute and have a warm addition to your holiday program.
