    William Boyce, 1711 - 1779. English Baroque.

    I hope to remember to post at least one work by Boyce each day for as long as I can find fresh ones on the Tube.

    Starting with his symphony number 1

    He also has some pieces transcribed for/and for organ too that are rather nice.

    True Bill, I have posted some of his organ works previously in the Pipe Organ forum, I intended this thread mainly for orchestral works, however his organ works still classify as Classical.
    Cheers MIKE.

    Something slightly diferent, Fugues from some of his symphonies

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4ZGdF3bR1Y&feature=fvsr

    Part of a Youtube series covering various composers, there is another "best fugues" set from Boyce works, exerpts from his Concerti Grosso (or is it Concerti grossi?) and overtures.
    Cheers MIKE.
