Composer: Jeremiah Clarke (c.1674 - 1707)
Forces: String or reed band
Untitled - Minuet - Sibell - Rondeau - Untitled - Bourree - Escosaise - Hornpipe - Gigue
Contained in a manuscript set of wind partbooks of French origin, these tunes are also suitable for string band. A trumpet part seems to have become detached (lacunae have been filled from an independent source).
The source parts give the composer as Clerks or Claique. The suite (which may, in common with others from the same collection, have an origin in theatre use) is notable for the first and only contemporary orchestral version of Clarke's "Trumpet Voluntary": the Rondeau.
