Programme Notes: This is a set of variations for descant, treble and tenor recorders based upon the French nursery song Frere Jacques: Thema: Moderato in F major. The theme is presented, and includes some independant movement between the instruments. Variation 1: An Allegro in F, light in mood and in three beats to the bar. Variation 2: A Moderato in A minor. Variation 3: Allegro in F major, and contrapuntal in texture. Variation 4: Andante. An introspective march-like variation in G minor. Variation 5: A thrilling Allegro finale. Initially contrapuntal and in the relative minor, this variation both modulates and chanbges texture frequently until reaching the tonic key of F at the end.
