Percy Hall has combined these three short pieces into one delightful work for string quintet that provides an energetic opener, a lyrical second movement and a spirited closing. The first two of these movements were composed by Johann Pezel (1639-1694), who was by far the most prolific stadtpfeifer composer in history. The composer of The Bachsingers is unknown. An excellent contest or festival work.
