Suite from Abdelazar

Henry Purcell (1659-1695)

SATB Saxophone Quartet

Suite from Abdelazar¬†by Henry Purcell, arranged for saxophone quartet SATB.¬† Purcell is generally considered to be one of the greatest English composers. He wrote incidental music for the 1676 play Abdelazar (or “The Moor’s Revenge”). Typical of the day, several of the movements became well known as popular songs. The rondo was later made famous by Benjamin Britten, who used it as the theme for his set of variations, ‘The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra’. The rondo as well as another selection, the Hornpipe, was included in the 2005 film Pride and Prejudice.

This transcription for saxophone quartet SATB of Suite from Abdelazar is comprised of five of the ten selections Purcell wrote for the play. The movements are as follows:

I. Overture
II. Minuet
III. Hornpipe
IV. Air
V. Rondo
