TR004c Traditional: Ding Dong Merrily! 

*NEW FOR CHRISTMAS* This is a setting of two 15th Century French tunes which are now commonly associated with Christmas: "Ding Dong Merrily On High" and "Noël Nouvelet". The piece begins with the tune set in rather a medieval style, but quickly develops with exciting quaver conversations between the parts.In the second tune the bass takes the lead with the other flutes adding lush harmonies and sparkling interjections that call back the feeling of the first tune and lead to an exciting conclusion.

W005a Warren: Keep Young And Beautiful 

Originally from the film Roman Scandals, this Harry Warren tune was more recently covered by Annie Lennox on her album Diva.  Al Dubin's rather 'un p-c' lyrics are well worth checking out.. and are reflected in this glamourous, tongue in cheek arrangement, full of 1930's charm!  Appropriately enough, this version was commissioned for the 40th birthday of one of our best customers, and Festive Flutes are very much looking forward to trying it out too!
