Arrangements for recorder consort by R. D. Tennent of three “airs”
(arias) with instrumental ritornelli, from celebratory odes composed by
Henry Purcell in 1683 (Z.~339 and Z.~324) and 1694 (Z.~323). Soprano player doubles on Tenor.

This is an arrangement by R.D. Tennent of the popular Adagio attributed by some to Albinoni. Despite questions about the origin of the work, it is widely considered to be a modern classic; for example, it has been used in the scores of more than 20 films.
