The Swansea Symphony Orchestra (String Section)

This Suite is in Four Movements, of which we are to hear the First, Third, and last.
Jig. This is a straightforward, robust piece. Intermezzo. Two Tunes are used. The
First is played slowly by First Violin, the Plucked Strings accompanying.
The Second Tune is a good deal quicker, in a jerky rhythm.
Finale. Here the Main Tune is a jiggy folk-deuce. The Dargason. Combined with this is another old English popular tune, Green Sleeves.
