Clarinet Quintet – Ding Dong Merrily on High
This is a clarinet quintet arrangement of my brand new and somewhat quirky arrangement of the well-known Christmas Carol.
I’ve given the 2nd. Clarinet and Bass some of the spotlight in this setting.
At letter D the music slips into a Jazz Waltz style and it is
important to swing the quavers to get the full effect, which produces
some interesting results. and at letter F, we find ourselves creating a
little Hocket, with fragments of the tune passed around the enemble –
but without it losing any of its cohesion.
At letter G the music returns (almost) to normal. and this reprise leads to the end.
Please pay attention to all the articulations and slurs, which are very specific to create the effects.
Parts supplied: Part 1 in Eb, parts 2, 3, and 4 in Bb, Part 5 in Bb (Bass clarinet).
