The highly acclaimed Mixed Bag series provides a great opportunity for woodwind players of mixed ability to play together, and make a perfect recital item for young musicians who are getting used to playing with others. Each arrangement will work with just three main parts. Part 1 is quite demanding but Parts 2 and 3 are easier. These parts can be played by just one or several players - it’s up to you! Optional ‘filler’ parts are also included for beginners.
Henry Purcell (1659-1695) held numerous appointments at the Royal court and Westminster Abbey, and is considered by many to be the greatest ever English-born composer. His prolific work covered all fields: orchestral, ecclesiastical, operatic, theatrical, incidental, and chamber music were all enriched by his output. Three of his most popular works have been arranged here by Graham Lyons.
