English suites no. 4

We've had suites for strings, how about one for winds? This is Vaughan Williams' Suite for Pipes. He evidently meant a quartet of home-made bamboo flutes, but it's usually played on recorders, here by the late David Munrow and the Early Music Consort of London, who were always up for later music if early instruments could play it.

There's four movements, rather loosely titled Intrada (0.01), Minuet (3.10), Valse (6.13), and Jig (9.02).
