Purcell – Fantasia on one note – for five violas




Okay, I know which part I would like to play: it’s the fourth player who gets to play the long C natural from start to finish. This is an amazing piece of writing, not just because of the “one note”, but for all the other typically crazy stuff Purcell likes to do with the harmonies. Don’t you love it? 4 mins. E/M
