Giuseppe Torelli’s Christmas Concerto, Op. 8, No. 6, begins with a somber grave, followed by a lively pastorale. A rather quirky largo provides a bridge to the sprightly gigue-like concluding movement. Originally for two violins, strings and continuo, R. D. Tennent has made this arrangement for recorder quartet.
