“Jesu” is such an amazing Bach favorite; I searched out a Christmas hymn that might merge effectively with it. Trial and error finally led me to “There’s a Song in the Air.” I endeavored to give both beautiful melodies equal importance as they intertwine throughout the piece.
One of the joys of arranging for flute choir is moving melodies between the flutes and this piece works particularly well in that regard. The momentum of these two glorious melodic themes flows together as they complement each other.
