The Water Music suite comprises a set of 21 movements, which are scored predominantly for woodwinds, but the circumstances surrounding its composition have long been a mystery. However scholars now believe it was composed in 1717 for a Royal supper party on the river Thames and played behind the Royal barge in the Kings presence, who so enjoyed the work that he asked for it to be repeated twice.

This series of arrangements for string quartet is aimed at string quartets� that are building a repertoire of incidental popular classics and �easy listening� music for social functions of every kind. In preparation also at the time of writing is a collection of the most popular hymns taken from the English Hymnal for string quartet with optional chamber organ. From time to time I shall add further pieces thus building the availability of music that is well known to the general public. String quartets should contact me if they have any particular requests, but here I must stress that strict copyright restrictions may apply for certain commissions
