scoring: A (Bc)
This minuet with variations is the last movement of the first sonata and was originally meant for a transverse flute (or oboe). We present it here in four different versions:
1. The original version in G major that fits a transverse flute or a voice flute;
2. A transposed version to Bb that fits a treble recorder, but it is quite difficult;
3. An adapted version in the original key of G major, easier than the Bb version;
4. An adapted version in F major, possibly even easier than the G major version.

Jean Baptiste Loeillet de Gant (1688 - c. 1720):  Sonata II in G minor
source: Six Sonatas for two German flutes (London 172?), No. 2
scoring: AA
As usual, this duo, which was composed for two transverse flutes in E minor, may be transposed a third above and performed with two treble recorders.
Originally there is a movement in G major (Bb major) placed after the 4th movement «Vivace». Because of its key signature and its position, I think this piece does not belong to Sonata II. I transcribed it anyway and placed at end of the sonata. Obviously, you are free to play it as 5th movement disregarding my opinion.

Anonymous:  Sawnay
source: Deusiesme recueil des dances et contre-dances avec la basse continue (Amsterdam 1688), No. 42
scoring: A (Bc)
The Sawnay is a sort of wind instrument with quadruple reed of the Maranao people, who live in the southern Philippines.
The instrument is about 28.4 cm long, the tube 6.5 mm in diameter, and the end of the bell about 4 cm in diameter.
It is related with other similar Asian instruments, like the more famous Shehnai of India. All of these instruments are eventually related with the European shawms and especially with the soprano of the family: the Shalmey.
It is obvious from this piece that the Sawnay was already known in Europe in the XVII century.

As you may see, the two original duos are based on the same theme developed differently.
Tempo marks are editorial and the second movement – Solfeggio Trentesimo Primo – originally was notated in 3/8.

Jacob Arcadelt (c. 1504 - 1568):  Voi ve n’andat’al cielo, madrigal a 4
source: Il primo libro de madrigali a quattro voci (Venice 1539)
scoring: ATTB
This edition of mine is an instrumental arrangement of a famous madrigal by Arcadelt. This praxis was quite common among musicians contemporary of Arcadelt and even centuries later.
Indeed, the original music has lyrics underneath, and the layout is the following:

You may see that the repeated crotchets (quarter notes) at the beginning of the second and fourth lines have a pure vocal meaning; that is, they are needed to fit all the syllables of the text, but do not have a real musical purpose. For this reason I decided to render them as minims (half notes) in my instrumental arrangement:

This is not true for the acephalous dactyl, which in Renaissance music has an important, dramatic meaning and function (see bar 35 in all parts):

Antoine Busnoys (c. 1430 - c. 1492):  Le serviteur
source: Harmonice Musices Odhecaton A (O. Petrucci, Venice 1501), No. 35
scoring: ATB
Most pieces published by Ottaviano Petrucci in his seminal collections of textless music were composed by musicians of earlier generations; among them, Busnoys is one of the earliest. According to the taste of the second half of the 15th century, his arrangement of Le serviteur originally was in 3 parts: indeed the «Altus» is an editorial and later addition, added to the piece when the change of taste asked for instrumental music in 4 parts. I warmly recommend to skip the «Altus» line in any serious performance, since it is quite out of style – and in some places even discordant with the three original parts – compared to the beautiful simplicity of the original composition.
The original time signature is the circle, as you may see in the facsimile of the original print; that is, the breve is perfect (it contains three semibreves) and the tactus contains one semibreve: it indeed corresponds to a modern 3/4 in three beats.

Originally, the two upper parts are a duo – as any other composition of this Giamberti’s collection. I added a bass part which obviously can be omitted.
