If you've ever watched Masterpiece Theater on PBS, you've heard this Rondeau by Jean Joseph Mouret.

The BBC site offers a little background on it.

I used an E-Z piano transcription, playing different parts with different Yamaha MOX patches. The middle section was not included, and certain parts no doubt had to be jettisoned. The sheet music also called for a comparatively subdued tempo of 92. I decided to stick fairly close to the chart, and did not listen to any versions of it until it was mostly complete. This version is good enough for the purpose at hand, but if I were to do it over, it would be more brisk, might include the missing middle section, and would borrow some things from other arrangements, notably in the bass clef. It may be an easy piece (finger numbers! guitar chord symbols!), but I confess I still haven't made it properly through on piano and don't plan to work on it any further for now. If you want to take a stab at it and need the music, let me know.
One huge cheat - the horn crescendo after the quiet part B was exaggerated with Ardour's "fade in" tool.

I like how majestic this sounds
