Tune of the Day: Gavotte by Praetorius

Transcribed for flute quartet with optional bass line

This gavotte is taken from Michael Praetorius's Terpsichore (1612), a compendium of more than 300 instrumental dances, which is both his most widely known work, and his sole surviving secular work.

Thanks to Gordon for suggesting this piece!
