    First heard this as I stumbled upon the "Simple Gifts" performed by a Washington, D.C. quartet, on Youtube. Having loved the ballet and the suite, I was enthralled to hear an outstanding distillation for sax quartet. Having purchased it, my sax quartet loves it and our audiences as well...

    . Thank you, Sheetmusicplus, and thank you Paul Cohen, well done. The difficulty rating is closer to advanced than medium, but still in between. Our quartet is skilled amateurs and semi-pros.
