SKU: [6602B]

The Queen's Farewell in three parts, is one of two "Farewells at the Funeral of the Late Queen" (Queen Mary II 1662 - 1694) found in James (or Jacques) Paisable's oboe tutor "Sprightly Companion" published in London in 1695. The other Farewell for four double reeds is by Paisable. Paisable's tutor may be the very first in English for the newly-emerging oboe. This version for three bassoons is transposed to A minor from the original in C major. The piece typifies wind instrument music for solemn occasions.
