product description

for 2 tenor/bass gambas (2 violoncellos), edited and transcribed by Dietmar Berger. The Fantasias and Canzonets are presented for the first time in a complete transcription for two bass instruments. The Canzonets are largely delicate, melancholy love songs. 52 pages, Series Collegium Musicum – Kölner Reihe Alter Musik


„The extraordinary inventiveness of Morley's two-part writing means that exploring these pieces can only be a source of untiring pleasure, and these arrangements are well done, and make this repertoire easily available to all. All credit therefore to Herr Berger and Walhall.“ THE VIOL (GB) 2016

„Morley’s duos are lovely pieces. The nine fantasies are intricate and satisfying polyphonic consorts for two, and the twelve canzonets are simpler but also delightful duos. ... a good rescource for teachers of viol or cello who want interesting but not too difficult duets for their students.“ THE VdGSA News (USA) No. 26/2018
