Suite - orchestral score composed by Alan Rawsthorne. For Treble recorder and piano (or string orchestra). Intermediate to Advanced. Published by Forsyth Publications (FP.FRA01).

ISBN 979-0-57050-256-1.

One of the first works of the modern recorder repertoire (contemporary with the well-known Sonatinas by Berkeley and Walter Leigh) to be discovered and published. The four movements are vintage Rawsthorne, suitably spiced with echoes of the recorder's heyday. A stately Sarabande leads directly to a Fantasia on the ballad 'Wooddy-Cock". There follows a graceful and flowing Air, and finally a rollicking Jig. The work is of only moderate difficulty. A version is also available for recorder and string orchestra, arranged by John McCabe.
