An arrangement for flute choir (2 concert flutes, alto and bass) of this haunting Song in F# minor. A bit tricky in places, especially the F# major conclusion, but fun to practise and certainly worth considering as a concert piece despite the slightly sombre opening theme. Best played passionately yet as lightly as possible.
