Christmas Tootie-Flooties! was originally written back in 1990, as a short medley of Xmas tunes for school instrumentalists - flute or recorder trio and piano.
As such it has been well received, but having recently re-arranged some other similarly-resourced pieces for wind or string instruments alone - i.e. without their piano part - I felt it might be an equally good idea to do the same here, and turn out a few versions for the commonest combinations I’ve written for before - Flute / Clarinet Choir, Wind / Brass Quintet, Saxophone Quartet.
Each arrangement is, however, individual - it’s not merely a copy - and hopefully makes best use of the respective instrumental ranges and timbres, by varying the concert key to suit.
As I wrote in my original programme note to the 1990 version: "Overall it is intended to be bright, lively and festive, with just a little calm and repose in the middle section, with Silent Night."
PS If there’s any other combination you’d like, I’m always open to suggestion, especially with Xmas currently only a couple of months or so away, yet again it seems!
strong>STOP PRESS! I have added an extra ’tune’ to the Christmas Tootie-Flooties! medley. Following Silent Night, there’s now my late Mother’s favourite, In the Bleak Midwinter - Holst’s melody - just before the Wish you a Merry Xmas ending.
The Christmas Medley for Piano Duet already included this, so it seemed only right to make it available for all the other versions and arrangements.
