The Suite is made up of six movements ranging from a Bach-like Aria to a Richard Rodgers-style Waltz. Rutter's own style comes forth most strongly in the final Rondeau with its characteristically forward-driving rhythms and beautiful melodic lines. Evoking an 'antique' spirit, each movement is based on a Baroque or Classical style.
