Coventry Carol – Flute Quartet
Coventry Carol is an English carol written in the 16th century. In those times there were local pageants, called “mystery plays,” in which the common folk performed dramatized stories from the Bible. This carol was part of the pageant held in Coventry.
This poignant carol is known for the use of the Picardy third, the use of the major chord at the cadence in a piece that is minor or modal.
The flute quartets can easily be expanded to flute choir by adding both alto and bass flutes. The Alto Flute part is included and the bass plays Flute 4.
