Three Carols for Flute and Organ
Arranged by Michael Barker
'Twas in the Moon of Wintertime (3:00)
Cold December Flies Away to a Virgin Meek and Mild (1:30)
Good People All, This Christmastime (2:00)
These three Christmas tunes receive fresh and engaging treatments for flute with organ. THE WEXFORD CAROL features a flowing accompaniment and lyrical lines for the flute, as well as use of the organ pedal for part of the melody and an ornamented final statement of the tune. UNE JEUNE PUCELLE begins and ends with short cadenza-like passages for flute, and passing chromaticism for the organ in the middle section. The set concludes with a sprightly, fast-paced setting of EL DESEMBRE CONGELAT, marked by echoing phrases traded between the flute and organ. Reproducible part for Flute included.
