Picture of Sheet music  by Colleen Muriel. Squirrel and Cat (subtitled Squirrel Has a Committee Meeting About The Neighbour's Cat) is commissioned by David Ian Foster and written for an unusual combination of instruments (flute headjoint, oboe reed and Bb clarinet). its very short (under a minute in length) and great fun to play.

Squirrel and Cat is actually part of a much larger work called Squirrel Song (A Day in the Life of Squirrel). Squirrel Song is written for flute, flute headjoint, oboe, oboe reed, B flat clarinet, B flat trumpet, trumpet mouthpiece and 2 pianos. It was commissioned by David Ian Foster.

This section of Squirrel Song; which I'm calling Squirrel and Cat has the sub-title Squirrel Has a Committee Meeting about the Neighbour's Cat. The unusual instrumentation was such fun (flute headjoint, oboe reed and B flat clarinet) that I felt it would work as an interesting short musical moment on its own.

So the question is - does the cat come to the committee meeting? Or is the meeting excusively a squirrel event. I will leave it up to the performers to decide.

This piece is definitely not tonal or traditional; but does use mostly traditional time signatures, and is definitely approachable/playable.

So here it is. Enjoy
