Riggadoon - The Second Part of Musick's Hand-maidThis Rigadoon, Z. 653 by Henry Purcell is part of The Second Part of Musick's Hand-maid.
This is a very important album of English Baroque music.
It was published in London in 1689.
Purcell's Rigadoon, Z. 653 was originally composed for the keyboard in the key of C Major.
This score is an arrangement for easy viola with piano accompaniment.
It is set in the key of F Major.
The viola part is appropriate for Grade 2 viola students.
It can be played entirely in the first position.
Although it is possible to play this piece in détaché, it will sound very nice if the violist uses brushed spiccato in the lower half of the bow.
