      Grave and Finale


This is an excellent showcase for string players! The Grave (about 1:20) lets your players show their slow, esspresivo side in a doleful D minor. The F major Finale is a lilting 3/8 jig that is easy to count in one, and has fun call and response counterpoint your students will love to play! It’s clear why this is one of Purcell’s most famous instrumental works! Highly recommended!
