Henry’s Purple Parcel

Written in 1994 for students at the 1995 International Guitar Festival, Bath, Somerset, England. The title came about because of the inability of computer spell-checkers to understand the name, Henry Purcell. Purcell's music is re-arranged and re-composed.

Instrumentation: Six guitars and drumkit.



I - Trumpet tune, called Cibell; II - A New Irish Tune (Lilliburlero); III - Riggadoon; IV - Round O (Rondo).
