  1. Suite

    In music, a suite is an ordered set of instrumental or orchestral pieces normally performed in a concert setting rather than as accompaniment; they may be extracts from a ballet, incidental music to a play, opera, film or video game, or they may be entirely original movements. In the Baroque era the suite was more precisely defined, with the pieces unified by key, and consisting of dances usually preceded by a prelude or overture. The suite was also known as Suite de danses, Ordre or Partita. In the eighteenth century, the term ouverture or overture may refer to the entire suite, as it does with the orchestral suites of J.S. Bach.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

  1. Suite

    swēt, n. a train of followers or attendants: a regular set, particularly of rooms: a series of dances arranged for instruments in the same or relative keys, and usually preceded by a prelude: a sequel. [Fr. Cf. Suit.]

Examples of suite in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Je me demande souvent à propos de la croyance la plus commune que Dieu ne vous donnera rien de plus que ce que vous pourriez peut-être manipuler; surtout quand je regarde autour de réaliser que la vie jette souvent des balles courbes un après l'autre que la plupart des gens trouvent difficile à gérer, physiquement et / ou émotionnellement. Il est vrai que beaucoup de gens sont confrontés à de nombreuses difficultés et les épreuves déchirantes qui incluent le rejet social, les discriminations raciales et sexuelles, la pauvreté déranger, le chômage horrible, les maladies mentales invalidantes, violence extrême, y compris le viol, et les maladies les plus difficiles comme le cancer et ainsi de suite, juste pour nommer quelques-uns. Ma compréhension personnelle est que la vie peut certainement vous combler avec beaucoup plus de défis que vous pouvez manipuler, et qui est la réalité que vous avez à accepter. Cela étant dit, je crois aussi que seul Dieu vous donnera la force - qui est nécessaire pour perdurer à travers ces situations difficiles, et à surmonter les adversités plus efficace. De sorte que vous ne devez pas perdre espoir face aux défis dans la vie, et devrait continuer à avoir une foi solide en Dieu pour le courage, l'endurance et la force qui vous permettrait de surmonter ces difficultés. Et je suis sûr que Dieu prendra soin de vous, comme toujours, au cours de ces phases difficiles dans votre vie.
