Three Christmas Trios arranged by Ricky Lombardo
For 3 Flutes
Duration: 2:10; 1:35; 2:20
Includes score and parts
Three Christmas Trios is a collection of traditional Christmas songs from England, Spain and France. These melodies have always been among the arrangers favorites. Each arrangement is different from one another and not like any he has heard in the past.
The First Noel and Fum, Fum, Fum are fairly straightforward arrangements for the most part. There are some key and meter changes of which you need to be aware. However, none are unusual or hard to master. To add further interest, the arranger has made use of a quintuplet and septuplet in the second flute part of The First Noel. Angels We Have Heard on High, although a traditional carol, has been given a more contemporary sound because of the syncopated rhythms used. This gives it a little extra spunk.
