For Flute Choir
Published by Falls House Press
Includes score and parts
A late Romantic/early modern German composer, Klengel was a cellist, and was famous for the etudes and solos that he composed for the cello.
This lush, chordal spiritual was dedicated to the memory of Austro-Hungarian conductor Artur Nikisch, and was originally scored for 12 cellos. This piece can be performed in several different combinations–only C flutes, only alto flutes, only bass flutes, or any combination of these flutes. 15 players are needed, as parts 9, 10, and 11 are divisi and require two players each. (Note: A cello can play double stops – two notes at the same time – but flutes generally do not.)
