A super-simple full orchestra setting of a classic Baroque tune! In the key of G, each section plays the melody in very comfortable ranges with doubling galore. Using mainly quarter and half notes, this piece also makes a great combined band and orchestra piece for an all-school performance with the inclusion of an alto sax part.
