Amazing Grace Goes Latin! (Clarinet Quartet)
A while back, I was contacted by Terry Needham, of Norfolk Reeds Clarinet Quartet, to ask if I would make versions of The Lone Ar-ranger! and Charleston Medley for his particular ensemble (3 Bb clarinets + bass clarinet).
I have done them, and thought that this might hopefully be something else to consider.
Where no bass clarinet is available, I have provided a version for Bb clarinet, as well as one for Alto Clarinet. Despite a few necessary upward octave transpositions, the lack of the deeper instrument doesn’t seem to spoil things too much.
I have now included an optional Piano part. Normally this kind of instrumental ensemble is self-sufficient, but the piano part may be of use, either when one or more instruments are unavailable, or perhaps in performance, should a more ’concertante’ effect be desired, and an instrument is readily available.
Please note that each Piano part is suitable ONLY for the particular instrumental version it is included with. Each arrangement varies subtly, in key, modulation, and occasional harmony or figuration and, as such, is neither interchangeable, nor self-sufficient on its own.
It is assumed that, whichever instrument(s) might be missing, the lead is always present.
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.
