This arrangement for Concert Band is based on the organ adaptation (Rondo in D) of the string orchestration (Rondo in G). Regardless of the key, it is a delightful piece representing music of the late Renaissance that recalls the English folk dances of an earlier century. An excellent teaching piece for 6/8 meter and rondo form, this presentation in E-flat falls comfortably under the fingers of band instrumentalists. The music is attributed to John Bull, but may have been written much later by noted organist, Richard Ellsasser.
