Wenrich's Fairy Queen
has nothing whatsoever to with the same named opera by Henry Purcell
and its well-known associated suite
which has belonged to the core of recorder music repertoire for some time. This transcription for recorder ensembles is therefore long overdue. A pretty and delicate piece in AABBACCAAAB form with an 8-bar introduction. The 1st tenor has the melody from start to finish whilst the bass is also fully occupied. The other voices have some bar-counting do to some degree, the most unusually by the great bass.
The cover of the original sheet music is illustrated by a diaphanously clad demure Fairy Queen
scattering red roses with great aplomb - all quite appropriate to the music itself.

A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
There is also a tenor solo
version of this item.
