Alec Templeton was a blind musician very popular in England and America in the 1930's and 1940's. This nifty little piece shows his skills in composing a jazzy sound using the techniques of J. S. Bach. Benny Goodman recorded the fugue movement in 1938. Playing in a swing style, they played the piece first as written by Templeton, and then repeated with solos. It is worth listening to that performance if you want to get the swing right! It is set for woodwind quartet by John Gibson (flute, oboe, Bb clarinet, bassoon). The audio sample has short parts of both movements. With a little practice this could be played by advanced intermediate players. Have fun!
