Download comprises both Score and Parts.

Duration 3:00

I Minuet, Z.611/7 II Air (La Furstenberg), Z.611/9

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:

In 1694 Henry Purcell composed a suite of short pieces to accompany the play "The Virtuous Wife, or, Good Luck at Last" by Thomas D'Urfey. Some sources do not include the Air, a setting of the French popular tune 'La Furstenburg', as part of the suite but this arrangement matches it with one of the two Minuets.
