Handel’s original Gavotte was to be an up tempo dance but after getting into it, I saw a possibility to change it to a beautiful Choral. So I did. My apologies to my hero Handel and hope he likes my decision.

This is a recognizable melody done in a much different setting.

Much re-harmonizing was done in this number as you can tell.

The work load in the top two trumpets is split evenly for better endurance.
