Well known and always enjoyed by everyone. Very British and by using the Bass on the fourth part, I was able to split the top two trumpets to save chops. The original was written for four recorders and broke traditional use of phrases which I tried to improve on by adding a 4/2 measure at the end of each phrase. The last section makes use of additional notes to make the ending more festive and more strong.
