    Matthew Camidge (1758-1844): Gavotte in A minor.
    From: Six concertos for Organ, Op. 13

    Originally from an organ solo in a concerto. Matthew Camidge was organist at York Minster from 1799 to 1842, a post hereditary to his family for 103 years. A prolific composer, this gavotte is now probably his best-known piece.

    Arranged for two mandolins and guitar by Andy Boden:

    We have played Andy's arrangement with our group ever since he first posted it here on the Cafe in 2012, and it's just a highly-satisfying piece to play on mandolins.

    Andy's arrangement is also reprinted in the (highly recommended) book "Exploring Classical Mandolin - Technique & Repertoire" by August Watters.

    This sounds wonderful Martin. I especially like the sound you get out of your Vinaccia and your decision to use it. Its sound is like that of a harpsichord.

    Thanks, all! It's a long-time favourite tune of mine and especially good as an ensemble piece.
