This suite consists of four dances inspired by, although not based on, Scottish country folk tunes and dances. Although the individual dances are not titled, each is denoted by a separate tempo or style marking.

This is an arrangement of mvt.1 "Pesante"

While Arnold did not title the four pieces individually, his music publisher (Novello & Co) has provided notes,[2] which are often employed by annotators for orchestral and concert programs. The first dance, Novello observes, is "in the style of a strathspey". featuring the horns.

The first performance was given at the Royal Festival Hall on 8 June 1957 with the BBC Concert Orchestra conducted by the composer.
This arrangement is for double wind quintet (and bass).
One flute plays piccolo throughout

Other pieces by Arnold, arranged by me, are available on this site.
