This is a new collection of six Grainger classics arranged for wind octet - five of his unique folksong settings plus his pseudo-baroque dance Handel in the Strand. The ensemble of 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons and 2 horns is one with a history going back to the baroque era, and became extremely popular by Beethoven's time. While Grainger never arranged the works selected here for the ensemble, he arranged them for all manner of instrumental combinations ranging from string quartet to full orchestra.
