Misc. Notes Selection of 5 movements from the Horn Suite in F (HWV 348), including a final part that is possibly an early version of a movement that later appeared in the Trumpet Suite in D (HWV 349). Note also that although there are just 4 accordion parts and a bass part it is not realistic to play this with only 5 players. You need at least 6, preferably more than that.
