Mercury - The Winged Messenger, From The Planets (Flute Choir)
Gustavus T. Holst
Arranged by for Flute Choir Rick Pierce. With its light and fluid air, Mercury is a natural transcription for flute choir, perfectly suited to the medium. Mercury is arranged for eleven required voices with a mostly optional contrabass flute part. Its constant shifts in beat placement and rhythms as well as its use of the full range of the flute choir will make it an interesting addition to the repertoire. This piece will prove a real challenge for the advanced flute choir. Scored for 3 piccolos, 5 C flutes, 2 alto flutes, bass flute and optional contrabass flute.
