Joy to the World - Forrest - orchestrationDan Forrest
Printed score and parts for full orchestra: 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons; 2-4 horns, 2 trumpets, 2 trombones, tuba; percussion; timpani; strings.
Irish Traditional Ensemble is also included in the score, and parts are bundled with this orchestration: D Whistle (or piccolo), Fiddle (Violin), Guitar, Bodhran (or hand drum), Bass (upright or electric), and Accordion (or concertina). Ensemble may play as a "feature" in front of orchestra; or individual Ensemble parts may be omitted if not available, or played by orchestral players.
Piano four-hands from choral score will add brilliance to this orchestration, but is not required with large/full-size orchestras.
Note: this scoring may be performed without choir as a stand-alone orchestral work (with or without piano four-hands). Consider it for an instrumental postlude/reprise/encore on your Christmas concert!
