Four Dances from Merrie England
£8.00 – £12.00
- composer: Edward German
- skill-level: Intermediate-Advanced
- instrumentation: Piccolo, 4 Flutes, Alto Flute, Bass Flute, Optional Contr'alto flute, Optional Contrabass flute, Optional Subcontrabass flute
- arranger: Robert Rainford
The four movements are titled Hornpipe, Minuet, Rustic Dance and Jig. All are beautifully melodic, with interest in all the parts. The parts are graded so that first flute needs some accurate fingering, while flute four is relatively easy. With relatively straightforward phrase structure, this is a concert piece that most groups would enjoy performing.
