This arrangement maintains the gentle essence of the concerto grosso movement of this well-known work while all sections have an opportunity to play the rich melodies and counterpoint. The lyricism and musicality of this piece is incredibly touching, yet it is remarkably uncomplicated to rehearse and perform. Here is an arrangement that almost plays itself, all with a peaceful spirit that your beginning students will surely remember long after the concert is over.
