Delius, F. - To be sung of a summer night on the water (1) - Flute Quintet
This sublime piece is one of a pair of unaccompanied part-songs written for wordless chorus, and later rearranged to form one of the 2 Aquarelles for String Orchestra. It translates wonderfully for flutes, with the tune meandering through the lush chromatic texture.
