Derwentwater Reels


Categories: , ,


This is another in my series of variable arrangements, though, on this occasion, I composed the three Reels used. They were composed during holidays in 1997 and 1998 and are entitled Cuthbert’s IslandManesty Way  and Calf Bay. The arrangement is, as usual, initially for Flutes 1 & 2, though the latter has options within it for Descant recorder, Clarinet and Bb / C, Violin(s), Accordion / Piano / Guitar and Bass, though these can be varied to suit the resources available. Please note that the final version of the Full Score also contains the parts for Clarinet in C.

These are lively tunes, suited for performance by Folk / Ceilidh Band, at a Concert, a Ceilidh or for GCSE Ensemble submission. The download comprises a full score and individual parts as PDFs plus a recording via Sibelius. Any of the tunes can be repeated to extend the duration of the set or, of course, played with another set of Reels.
