Program Notes on Rigadoon Z. 653 by Purcell, H. :

This Rigadoon in C Major, 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 in C Major, Z. 653 was originally composed for the keyboard.

This score is an arrangement for easy violin with piano accompaniment.

It remains in the original key of C Major.

The violin part is appropriate for Grade 2 violin 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 violinist uses brushed spiccato in the lower half of the bow.
