  1. Gavotte
Quite untypical for Elgar. Wie missed something like a melody.

Parts and score in a very thin, damageable paper quality. There are no additional informations about the composer oder the opus. But is an absolutely great cost-performance-ratio. I think that is a really good line for a edition to publish easy works for beginners.
