After writing the flute and piano version of this piece, it occurred to me that it would make a nice flute choir showcase. The contrapuntal nature of the original suits an ensemble very well and it's a ton of fun to play!
Editor's Choice, Jonathan Myall Music, London, England -- "Not exactly all of the Magic Flute, but a skillful combination of some of the famous bits. The Queen of the Night is set with themes from the Overture, and Papageno together with Isis and Osiris all make an appearance. The writing is very contrapuntal so you will need a good group who can play up to the speed necessary to bring it all to an end in 5 minutes."
-- Christine Hankin, London College of Music and Media
