Two Hornpipes, by Henry Purcell (1659 - 1695), arranged by Paul Burnell for instruments in four parts.

Download file comprises score and all parts.

Duration (if each Hornpipe is played through twice) 3:30

Score in C

I The Old Bachelor, Z.607: Hornpipe II The Fairy Queen, Z629: Hornpipe

Performers may play through each Hornpipe twice, and where the ensemble contains more than four players the second time through may include all players or have varied instrumentation. The melody line has been shared between Parts 1 and 2, but comprehensive cues have been provided in Part 1 to allow the melody to be played complete in that part, if convenient.

The arrangement is suitable for multiple quartet combinations with parts available (and potential instrumentations suggested) as follows:

Part 1: C, Eb (flute, oboe, alto recorder, Eb clarinet, violin 1) Part 2: C, Bb (oboe, tenor recorder, Bb clarinet, violin 2) Part 3: C - alto & bass clefs, Bb, Eb, F (Bb clarinet, bass recorder, alto saxophone, horn in F, viola) Part 4: C - bass clef, Bb, F (bassoon, great bass recorder, tenor saxophone, horn in F, 'cello)

Part 4 may be played an octave lower than written.

Any other appropriate instruments, even if not suggested above, may play.

Although the score is presented with a layout appropriate for string quartet this does not indicate a preferred instrumentation.

Programme note:

Baroque period composers in England often used the triple-time hornpipe dance rhythm. Composer Henry Purcell included several hornpipes in his theatrical music. The two hornpipes here are from 'The Old Bachelor' (1693) and 'The Fairy Queen' (1692).
