"Poem", originally for flute and piano, composed by Charles Tomlinson Griffes (1884 - 1920). This wind ensemble arrangement is designed to make this composition playable by most high school clarinetists and instrumentalists. Please note that the B-flat instruments are written with a key signature of 3 flats, not one of six sharps. This was done to keep the clarinets playing in a familiar key with ample accidentals to ease the reading of the parts. The bass clarinets and the bassoons play identical parts and can be substituted or augmented as desired. Though a minimum of two double bassists is ideal, an alternate part for tuba is also provided (also divisi).
