Also included are Elgar's "Chanson de Matin, Op. 15, No. 2," Warlock's "Basse-Dance from Capriol Suite," and Bach's "Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor BWV 582." While this collection is indeed perfect For a Beautiful Day, its lovely melodies are also apt for any other occasion where beautiful music is needed.
