Variations on "Of the Father's Love Begotten" (Flute Quartet)

Variations on "Of the Father's Love Begotten" (Flute Quartet)

SKU: 70010

Based on the 13th Century plainsong, Divinum Mysterium, this setting is for four C flute part plus 2 handbells, triangle, vibraslap, hand drum, suspended cymbal, and harpsichord. It opens with tolling bells and each voice in opposite corners of the performance space, then transitions to a harpsichord (keyboard) verse, followed by a harmonized, mixed meter variation with flutes. The hand drum sets up a 5/4 dance variation in which the first flute interjects Advent and Christmas tunes before the opening melody returns and the bells toll one last time. A showstopper with rhythmic challenges for all.
