Sonnerie de Sainte-Geneviève du Mont de Paris

Marin Marais - Arranged by Melanie Thorne

'The Bells of Sainte-Geneviève du Mont de Paris' is a work by Marin
Marais written in 1723, originally  for viol, violin and harpsichord with
basso continuo.  The original is written as a passacaglia or chaconne.
This arrangement for saxophone octet is a slightly shortened version
of the original with rhythmic and melodic interest in all parts.
Considering this work is nearly 300 years old, this ensemble gives
the music a surprisingly contemporary sound. (Grade 6-8)
