Hey, Af. Welcome to the board. No, we don't have a rule against such questions. Running these things down forms a very diverting pastime for our more experienced members.

On a hunch, I word-searched on the arranger's name, which was scrolling across the player as I listened to your clip. Ben Clinesmith is the Lower School Asst. Academic Dean and Teacher of Strings at Calhoun School in NYC. He can be reached at I suggest you contact him directly. If anyone would know the information you want, he would. I'm betting it was originally a harpsichord composition. Sheet music of Clinesmith's arrangement can be obtained from

I'm afraid I can't help you more than Corlyss already has, but it is a nice piece, nicely performed. Welcome to the board.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
