Belfast Hornpipe for Solo Penny Whistle/Piccolo and Flute Choir

A real “crowd-pleaser” arrangement of the Traditional Irish favourite “The Belfast Hornpipe” - made out of three hornpipes - The Boys of Blue Hill, The Harvest Home and The Belfast Hornpipe. The parts for the flute choir look simple, but can be deceptively tricky due to intonation, ensemble and rhythmic clarity challenges! This works best with a Penny Whistle as the solo - but Piccolo also works!

Instrumentation:

1 x Solo Penny Whistle/Piccolo
 3 x Concert Flutes
 1 x Alto Flute
 1 x Bass/Contrabass Flute

This can happily be played by a large ensemble due to the piccolo/whistle pitch range which comfortably soars above the main texture.
