Length: approx. 5 ¾ mins. Sounds best with the 1st tenor doubled.
Nola is a wonderful bubbling composition full of gaiety, wit and charm. With its triplet runs ranging over all the voices it is a performers' dream. This recorder adaptation is an absolute fun-piece and is demanding in that the melody flows between the voices requiring careful co-ordination, especially bars 65-68 and bars 105-7 in the coda. The requirement for a garklein recorder for the top A (bar 107) is the peak (pun intended) of absurdity. It could perhaps just be managed with a sopranino - but probably the best solution is however to double the 1st voice. Enjoy!
A tempo of 120 crotchets/min. is suggested. Nola was published by Sam Fox Pub. Co., Cleveland, Ohio, USA.
Felix Arnt dedicated Nola to his wife Nola Locke, herself a composer, singer, and teacher who travelled as soloist with the St. Louis Symphony. In its turn this recorder adaptation is respectfully dedicated to Dorothea Wegelein, a heavenly gift, herself a goddess and songstress of Bremen, Germany.
