        Every string player should play this at some point. I bought this for my intermediate string ensemble. Some of the movements are too difficult, but Basse Dance and Mattachins are very accessible for young players.

        Good quality printing, easy to read, well laid out. Plenty of parts for orchestra.
        Only quible is that the size of the page has been slightly reduced from the original printing to fit A4 page which always makes the notes more cramped, but that seems to be the way all music is going these days.

        I remember enjoying playing this when I was at school so I was glad to see it (and that it is so cheap) when I started up a string orchestra here in Derry. I have a high proportion of "traditional fiddlers" as they call themselves here and they really took to the piece. It was good sight-reading practice for them and I think they are going to play it very well. The parts are plentiful, well set out and the delivery was speedy.
