SATB parody of Mozart Magic Flute about holidays

Post by napierboy »

Curious one, I know. Some years ago, I performed an SATB arrangement of the famous Magic Flute tune in which each part sang the virtues of different holiday destinations, one of which, I recall, was the South of France. Eventually all four parts are trying to outdo each other in the classic Mozart style.

I have Googled high and low (Unfortunately, I cannot remember who I sang it with!) but to no avail. Does anyone recognise it? It would be perfect for a concert I am doing this summer.

Any help gratefully received.

It's called the Magic Carpet, arranged by Paul Jennings and Fritz Spiegel and published by OUP in both TTBB and SATB versions. Good fun, as long as you don't all try to out-shout each other!

Hello, I have contacted the OUP (= Oxford University Press?) for info about sheet music for the Magic Carpet. Unfortunately, neither this title nor the composers appear on their list of materials. Can you help suggest another spot where I might find this music, please? :?: :D

Hello tomp,

I've spotted a couple of sites selling this. Depending on where you are, you may want to buy from one or the other:

In the U.S. and Canada:

In the U.K. and Europe:
