William Boyce (1701-1779) was a notable London organist and composer of church, orchestra and stage music, and was master of King George III's orchestra.  This arrangement of his Alleluia by Jon Bohls is a study in 1. unison tuning, 2. light style and 3. tonguing, both regular and slurred.  Since it is a round (or canon), the same melodic passage occurs in all parts and can be practiced at the same time to match up all aspects of playing.
