This tune from The Fairy Queen Suite (No. 2) represents the finest of Henry Purcell’s work and is delightful with its emphasis on a light marcato stroke that flows easily and naturally at an allegretto tempo. The key of G major in both the 6/8 and 2/4 sections fits naturally under the fingers for young string students. The bass part has been simplified in a few places to more accurately match the technical abilities of young bass players, otherwise the cello and bass parts are in unison or octaves. These elements combine to make this an accessible grade 2 arrangement. Three copies of the 3rd Violin/Viola T.C. part are included in each set. Duration 1:30.
