Capriol Suite #V 

 This is a sublime piece written for strings (the Capriol Suite #V. Pied-en-L'air by Peter Worlock). Ever since I first heard it I wanted to play it on the piano. I carefully transcribed it to work with piano, but to make it come alive the voice leadings and inner melodies have to be there or it will simply sound like an average coral. I approach it like an étude and it's a study in a number of things not the least of which are some big stretches for my hands. I could see this being a great concert encore to send audiences off with a moving yet sweet moment.
