The instrumentation for this work is the same as Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No.5. The Suite is made up of six movements ranging from a 'Bach-like Aria' to a 'Richard Rodgers-style Waltz'. Rutter's own style comes through most strongly in the final Rondeau with its characteristically forward-driving rhythms and beautiful melodic lines. Evoking an 'antique' spirit, each movement is based on a Baroque or Classical style.
