Ut, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, La

John Bull’s hexachord fantasia is a miracle of modulation. Its “theme” is an ascending/descending hexachord, played on every chromatic step of the G scale. Especially the Db phrase comes as a big surprise.

I decided to arrange it for recorders ATTB (or ATBB) where the first T switches to Soprano in the end. Transcription (and deciding what instruments, and how to fit the music to them) was a surprising amount of work, but I think the result sounds cool.


My Patreon supporters have just received the sheet music. Why don’t you join them?
