scoring: A (Harpsichord)

Transposed and arranged from the original score for violin or cornet, sackbut and continuo.
This is not a truthful transcription of this marvelous piece of music: I have already published a good edition of it in the related entry you may see above on this page. Instead, through this edition of mine I would like to convey my thoughts about editing and performing instrumental music of the early 17th century. I see this edition as a legacy of mine in being a musicologist, an editor, a publisher, and last but even least (!) a recorder player.
Cima is an underrated composer, but indeed a giant in his time: one of the first composers to use the new continuo technique and the sonata form. His sonatas are bare, but show perfection in their structure; they are never verbose even in their unexpected length and are quite meaningful. They almost perfectly reflect my philosopy both in music and in life: being underrated sometimes could be a blessing rather than a curse.

Anonymous:  Chaconne
source: Musica 2-R-4, Schrank II collection. Sächsische Landesbibliothek, Dresden
scoring: A (Bc)

Arranged from the original score for violin and continuo.

This demanding chaconne is the longest I have ever seen: maybe that could be fine for a violin player, but when played with a wind instrument it could be too stressful. I suggest to edit out the less suitable bits according to the player’s judgement.

The third line is the tenor; that is, the original melody of the song. Hence, it has to be enhanced in some way, for instance doubling it or playing it with a louder instrument.

Gottfried Finger (c. 1660 - 1730):  A Ground
source: 40 Airs anglois […] Livre second (Amsterdam c. 1702), No. 19
scoring: A or C (Bc)

Of all the grounds composed by Finger, this is the most peculiar, since it can hardly be named a «ground». Indeed, there is no short and recognizable pattern in the bass line, even if the bass keeps moving around the same passages.

Furthermore, the narrow extension of the recorder part makes the piece suitable for both recorders in F (or G) and recorders in C, as I show in my performance, where I alternate a treble recorder with a descant.

George Frideric Handel (1685 - 1759):  See the conqu'ring hero comes
source: Oratorio Joshua - HWV 64
scoring: SAATB

This famous chorus was first composed in 1747 for the oratorio Joshua (HWV 64). It was an immensely popular piece and Handel soon added it to another oratorio Judas Maccabaeus (HWV 63), which had premiered the season before. When a friend said to Handel that in his opinion the composer had composed better things than «See the conq’ring hero comes», Handel replied: «You will live to see it a greater favourite with the people than my other fine things».
In 1884 the Swiss writer Edmond Louis Budry wrote new French words to this composition, creating the Easter hymn «À toi la gloire, O Ressuscité!», which was later translated into English as «Thine be the Glory».
In Ireland the hymn is associated with Christmas as well as Easter. With German lyrics it is sung as an Advent hymn beginning «Tochter Zion, freue dich».
