Because we had so many orders for the Looney Tunes Chorale and Fugue, I decided to do another in the same style but this time work use the Flintstone theme. The melody was great for both a chorale and a fugue. The Chorale is filled with beautiful suspensions and is very easy to play. The Fugue will require some confidence as do all fugues for each player must count. This will be a favorite with your audience as they recognize the different melodies intertwined in the Fugue. I have included the Flintstone theme, Joy to the World, Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah as well as others. There is a lot happening in this one and your students must keep their head in the game at all times.
