This piece is the 4th movement from Luigi Boccherini’s String Quintet in C major, entitled night music of the streets of Madrid. Despite being called “Passa Calle,” it is not a true ‘passacaglia’ in form but was so named to refer to people walking along the street, “singing to amuse themselves.” The accompaniment is malleted or plucked throughout and should be played lightly like a dance with slight emphasis on the first beat of each measure. The melody weaves in and out and the dynamics vary throughout. This a delightful arrangement and will be fun to ring and a toe-tapper for the audience!
