Solos and Duets – Volume 2
For C Instruments and Accompaniment
Arranged by John F. Wilson
The enthusiastic response to the first volume in this series prompted this collection. There are many similarities to Volume 1 including the variety of styles ranging from Mozart's Alleluia to a swing version of I Will Bless the Lord, to a novel setting of the spirited Joshua. Another feature is the blending of contemporary and traditional songs in a single composition.
As in the first volume, all of these settings can be played either as solos or duets. A new feature is that two of them have optional third parts, so they can be played by a trio of instruments. The ranges are ideal for oboe, flute and violin. Several optional 8vas are included so the performer can decide which octave is more comfortable. The parts are basically interchangeable.
