Calypso is a fun piece for flute choir featuring hand claps! It is scored for 4 C flutes, Alto and Bass flute and written in concert G major. All parts are active most of the time as this piece involves clapping as an additional element. In the clapping sections, foot stomps use of sticks etc can be used as an alternative- anything goes in the percussive sections to make it a happy piece. There is a section in the middle which is entirely clapping- this section can be altered or adapted to incorporate alternative clapping rhythms, or extended if people wish. The range is about 2 octaves in the parts and the highest note is top G which only appears once in flute 1 in the last bar! It’s more of a challenge rhythmically but it follows elements of the style and most of the work is quavers and crotchets (eighth ’s and quarters) It has been set to intermediate level, but the whole score is on the youtube link for you to assess suitability. The full score is 10 pages plus the DS al coda (16 pages in all) Parts are 3 pages, and it is around 3 minutes 45 in length. Price is for the full score and all parts. Great as a fun piece in a variety of situations!!
