Largo - Allegro - Adagio - Tempo di Minuetto

Pub. Oxford, 1742. Hayes recommended an instrumentation of oboe, violin and violoncello, but also suggested upwards transposition by a tone (provided here as an alternative) to allow performance by two (transverse) flutes (in D), or by one flute and a violin. The suite also falls within the range of tenor recorders. If wind instruments are selected it would be not inappropriate to play the bass part on bassoon.
