Originally written for flute, harpsichord, and strings, this arrangement is for flute and piano. The instrumentation is the same as Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No.5. The Suite is made up of six movements ranging from a Bach-like Aria to a Richard Rodgers-style Waltz. Rutter's own style comes forth most strongly in the final Rondeau with its characteristically forward-driving rhythms and beautiful melodic lines. Evoking an antique spirit, each movement is based on a Baroque or Classical style.
