In your youth, some of you may have enjoyed making flower crowns. This small ensemble was created by friends of the Toho College of Music. I reconfigured it to flexible instrumentation with percussion.

Percussion may be omitted. At least five parts/players are needed. If played with brass instruments only, the top part is in a comfortable range for trumpet. Some parts suggest best use by woodwinds if possible. As there are few pauses for middle and lower voices, when performing with a concert band, please balance piano (soft) sections to the woodwind instruments.

This was composed for elementary up to adult musicians. I am looking forward to your cute and enjoyable performance.
