Music for the Royal Fireworks, Minuet (string quartet)
Title: Minuet I and II from Music for the Royal Fireworks
Composer: G. F. Handel, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin 1; Violin 2; Viola; Cello
Printout: 4 pages
Note: Music from The Fireworks Suite is essential for gig musicians. Although minuets generally do not serve well for processional music, I have seen this one used with the first minuet for the attendants and the second, shifting to D Major, for the bride. It works very well, and is a nice change from the usual.
