This suite was created from, what was then (1674), an instructional book on the art of Spanish guitar playing. It is a wonderful collection of short pieces in many tempos and styles. The shifting 6/8 and 3/4 feel in several movements is found, to this day, in much of the popular music of Latin America. Nine movements have been selected and arranged here. The sound of the brass quintet is, obviously, nothing like that of the five-string guitar but the Spanish flavour and feel make this something just a little different for brass players.
