A few years back we stayed for Christmas at the Best Western Monkbar Hotel in York, and had a lovely time! We now go back there as often as we can, because we love the city itself, as well as the surrounding countryside.
I have dedicated this light-hearted investigation of a famous Yorkshire folk-song to the Director of the hotel, June Nelsey, herself also a Director of Best Western UK, and her outstanding staff. I don’t get any commission, but it’s a great place to stay!
Because this is the only arrangement where four identical-rang instruments are used, the internal harmony parts have sometimes been amended, in order to provide a solid bass-line, without the use of a real bass instrument - the versions for Flute Choir and Flute Quartet are thus not compatible, nor even in the same key!
N.B. In the present economic climate, a good number of smaller ensembles understandably buy just the set of parts as, in reality, these alone are all that is needed in performance. Equally, a similar number buy both the parts and the full score. To compensate for this, I intend to reduce the cost of the full score by $4, and increase the price of the lead part by $3, a differential that wasn’t available to sellers at the former SibeliusMusic.com.
