A fabulous piece for singer and basso continuo, this edition prepared by Nicholas Routley features some extra sections not normally found in other editions. These sections occur in only one or two manuscripts and are usually ignored. The accompaniment is realised, and there's a part for the singer with the figured bass.



A cantata for male alto voice, recorder, two violins and b.c. Edited by Rosalind Halton, this is great new repertoire for any countertenor.

Here's a relative rarity! A sacred work by Kerll for two basses and continuo. This is a somewhat virtuosic piece. Again, the continuo is unrealised. You get three scores and a solo bass part when you purchase this edition.

Two lovely works for bass voice, accompanied by one violin and continuo in "Salve coelestis Pater", and two violins and continuo in "O Jesu dulcissimi". Score is figured bass and not realised. Two scores plus instrumental parts. Tunder is one of those forgotten composers who should be resurrected. These are excellent works suitable for performance.





Michel Lambert was Jean-Baptiste Lully's father-in-law, and the two collaborated in producing various theatrical works. This song for three sopranos (the three graces) or 2 sopranos and alto with basso continuo, can be found in Lully's ballet La Naissance de Venus. The figured bass is not realised. 4 scores (one for each singer, plus the harpsichord) and a bass part (cello or gamba). Some beautiful harmonies. This should be heard much more often.
