Peter Warlock wrote the Capriol Suite for Piano duet. He also produced a version for string orchestra and both were published in 1926. Two years later, in 1928, he made this arrangement for full orchestra. This new edition corrects a few minor errors that were present in the 1928 edition published by Curwen and also shows the trumpets in Bb; they were shown in C originally. The six movements which are based on sixteenth century dance tunes are:- Basse-Danse, Pavane, Tordion, Bransles, Pieds-en-l´air, Mattachins.
