This is the incidental music for Strings to the tragic play Abdelazer (or The Moor's Revenge) as composed by Henry Purcell (1659-1695). This set of parts comprises the following: 5 x Violin I; 5 x Violin II; 4 x Voila; 6 x Bass, and; 1 x Continuo.
This is an excellent Baroque piece for string orchestra of moderate ability. Such music is scarce. It will appeal to a wide range of abilities with plenty of period interest for the more advanced player as well as accessibility for the learner. Good value. Anonymous
