Overture - 2. [Hornpipe] Rondeau - 3. Aire - 4. Aire - 5. Minuett - 6. Aire - 7. Jigg - 8. Hornpipe - 9. Aire

Includes the ubiquitous Rondeau in its aboriginal setting, and a fine hornpipe which appeared in Playford's Dancing Master (Part II, 2nd edition, 1698) as "The Hole in the wall".

This suite, written for Aphra Benn's play "Abdelazer (the usual spelling), or, The Moor's Revenge", comes from "A collection of ayres, compos'd for the theatre" pub. J. Heptinstal for Frances Purcell soon after the composer's death. Conceived for strings, but also suitable for wind bands.The top two parts occasionally go below the oboe's range, but not so often as to make wind band performance impossible.
