Chaconne, The Grand Dance
from Henry Purcell's semi-opera King Arthur, or The British Worthy (Z. 628).

Arranged for string quartet of two violins, violoncello and double bass.

Well known for its beautiful melodies, this piece of music, chaconne by British Baroque Master Henry Purcell is also called "The Grand Dance." The composition is from act 5 from his semi-opera King Arthur.

There are several versions of arrangement available for this composition. However, this arrangement for string quartet is unique in that it has two basses -- that is, violoncello and double bass.

While Violin 1 tries to lead simple melodies with the help of Violin 2, the two bass instruments balance rhythm and melody by staying at the same note or going their way with decent lines.

Include score and a set of parts, plus a bass part (vc and double bass).
