Barrett : Tunbridge Walks : Strings (Vn.Vn.Va.Vc.): score, parts, and cover page
Composer: John Barrett (c.1674 - c.1735)
Forces: String band
Overture - Allmand - Corrant - Aire - Jigg - Trumpett Aire - Round O - Round O - Minuett
Incidental theatre suite written for Thomas Baker's play, published in 1703.
5.Jigg was included in the twelfth edition (1703) of Playford's Dancing Master entitled Tunbridge Walks.
The Overture has all the characteristics of a missing trumpet. There exists a version in manuscript with a trumpet part but this, except for two bars, doubles the first violin. No melody is provided to supplement the chordal passages. That trumpet part, contributing little, has not been incorporated into this edition.
