These two madrigalesque fantasias were originally for viols (see SM5) but work nicely on SSA recorders. They come from British Library MSS 34800A-C, which was compiled during the 17th century. 3 scores. This is the same as the Viol consort page SM5. The recorder edition of course has recorder clefs!
This lovely two part madrigal for 6 recorders is by Marc'Antonio Ingegneri, the teacher of Claudio Monteverdi, and an important composer himself. He wrote a number of books of madrigals, motets and masses. This edition is transposed up from the original key. For a sample page, please see SM140 (in the original key) on the Viol Consorts page. Score and parts.
Dutch composer Willem de Fesch was an almost exact contemporary of Handel. This collection of 6 sonatas was written for two German flutes or violins, and first published in England in 1739. Saraband has published the original version, which may also suit recorder. 2 scores.
Audio sample is the third movement of Sonata 1 - Sicilienne
Thirty six pieces by this Mediaeval master. All of these are vocal in origin, and texts (not all verses) have been provided, though as with all music of this era, text underlay is ambiguous at best. This is not a scholarly edition, but one to play from and enjoy. The majority of pieces are virelai, plus some ballades and rondeaux.
