for 2 bass viols, one of which is superseded by a treble viol, and basso continuo
Sünching-Manuscript, editied as first edition by Leonore and Günter von Zadow. The Sünching Manuscript – an autograph scribed between 1670 and 1682 – primarily contains numerous sonatas and suites for two violas da gamba. This Suite, however, was written for barytone and viola da gamba with the peculiarity that the bowed barytone part is superseded in the middle of the Passagalia by a treble part. In our edition, we have assigned the two barytone lines to an additional viola da gamba and the basso continuo, and suggest a change from the bass to a treble viol at the abovementioned place. Finger’s barytone suites are not composed in the virtuoso manner of many of the sonatas for two viols in the Sünching Manuscript, but the music is nevertheless very charming and many-faceted, and offers a very special effect through the change to treble viol.
