The lovely Advent chant is here arranged for mixed instruments. I have framed it with the opening bars of that trumpet call to Advent watchfulness, Wake O wake, a voice is calling, which returns more quietly at the end. Please contact me for different instrumental parts. This arrangement would work particularly well with violins taking the flute and oboe parts.
