Hanukkah Harmony for flute sextet
Hanukkah Harmony is a full flute choir arrangement of George Frideric Handel’s march from Judas Maccabeus and traditional hymns of the holiday – Maoz Tzur (Rock of Ages) dating from the 13th century, and Mi Y’amelel (Who Can Retell the Story). Instrument parts include piccolo, three C-flute parts, alto flute, and bass flute. The alto flute solo, a phrase of the last, is meant to be a single instrument, tempo decided by the soloist. The arrangement has been played during the holiday season a number of years by the Atlanta Flute Ensemble, and was requested by a former member for the Israel Flute Choir.
