Henry Purcell : Rondeau (arranged for four SATB recorders)

This Rondeau is from the incidental music by Purcell for a theatre work called "Abdelazar", and has been arranged here for four recorders. This same theme was used to great effect by Benjamin Britten in his fun yet educational piece called A Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra, and the film Pride and Prejudice also incorporates this familiar music. You can print the Score or the four parts for Soprano (or Descant) Recorder, Alto, Tenor and Bass Recorders. The video below illustrates the music with a graphical animation, or you can play the mp3 file and see the sheet music score before downloading. The same work is also available from mfiles as a Piano arrangement.
