English Suite No.7

Written in 1999 at the request of the German music publisher, Vogt & Fritz, for the 'Bayerische Landeszupforchester', an orchestra of, mainly, plucked string instruments, to whom the music is also dedicated. As with all the other English Suites, no tune is duplicated and the instrumentations are all different. The tunes are taken from 'English County Songs' (Broadwood and Fuller Maitland, 1893).

Instrumentation: Mandolin I & II, Mandola, Guitar and Double Bass.



I - The Outlandish Knight; II - Lazarus; III - King Arthur; IV - John Appleby (Hop-picker's song).
