The bourrée from Suite No. 2. arranged symphonic wind and double bass.
It should be played three times, including all repeats as follows
1. Fls, Cls, Hns. Bsn 2 & Bs
2. Obs, Bsn 1

The mp3 reflects this.

The horn parts are provided in D and also in C basso with a key signature, as in the Handel orchestration.( for those horn players wishing to play off the original!!)
