    Default Purcell: Two Bourrées

    These are two Baroque bourrées by Henry Purcell, the first in G major and the second in A minor. Originally for harpsichord, adapted for mandolins and tenor guitar.

    Thanks to Nigel Gatherer for the setting:

    Nigel doesn't give any source or Zimmerman catalogue numbers, so I'm not sure where they are from. I suspect they are not originally intended to be played together, but it works well this way.
