A delightful collection of chamber music by Jean Phillipe Rameau and Johan Helmich Roman arranged for four guitars. These seven dances vary in style and tempo and are uniquely interesting both harmonically and rhythmically. Parts range in difficulty from easy to moderate in the lower parts and moderate to more advanced in the first part. Pedagogically, these pieces will challenge and engage both high school and college students. Fingerings have been left out to allow students and directors to explore different possibilities. These dances will make a fine addition to an ensemble's recital program or gig repertoire. In standard notation only. Score and parts included.
