source: Sonata IX from Concerti di Flauto, Violini, Violetta, e Basso di Diversi Autori (Naples 1725). Manuscript preserved in the Music conservatories of Naples
scoring: AB
Arranged from the original score for treble recorder and violin in A minor. Divisions are editorial.
The arrangement follows quite exactly the original score, since the first line was already thought for a treble recorder in G, while the lower line – although it was thought for two violins in unison – perfectly fits a bass recorder.

Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck (1562 - 1621):  Ballo del Granduca - SwWV 319

Johann Pachelbel (1653 - 1706):  Allein Gott in der Höh sei Ehr
scoring: SAB
Arranged from the original score for keyboard.
The attribution to Pachelbel is dubious and the piece could have been composed by Johann Heinrich Buttstett (1666 - 1727), who was Pachelbel’s pupil.

Giovanni Felice Sances (c. 1600 - 1679):  Fuggi mio cor l’esca del dolce sguardo
source: Il quarto libro delle cantate (Venice 1636)
scoring: A (Bc)
Ours is a substantial arrangement of this beautiful aria. Indeed, I added divisions and harmonised the bass line loosely, but summing up I think any 17th century player would have done the same.

Giuseppe Sammartini (1695 - 1750):  Sonata III in C major
source: Six sonatas or duets for two German flutes (London n.d.), No. 3
scoring: AA
Transposed from the original score for two flutes in A major
4
Giuseppe Sarti (1729 - 1802):  Variazioni del Minuetto La ra dell’Opera La Grotta di Trofonio
scoring: A (Harpsichord)
The original score in Bb major is for «Cembalo con violino obligato»; that is, the harpsichord plays a more important role than the violin. Mine is a quite loose arrangement, which moves phrases from the harpsichord part to the recorder one, does not strictly respect the original structure and gets rid of all the repeat marks.
The original composition – taken from the opera La grotta di Trofonio that Antonio Salieri composed in 1785 – is an aria for soprano and orchestra sung by the opera’s female protagonist, Ofelia, who mocks the eponymous Trofonio and his grotto.

Luigi Cherubini (1760 - 1842):  Et vitam venturi saeculi for double choir
scoring: SSAATTBB
As in the great works in which Bach’s speculative constructivism is manifested, in this Credo by Cherubini the merely technical fact is transcended and spiritually transfigured precisely in the moments in which it finds its apparently most abstract implementation. And this happens precisely in the concluding fugue on a Gregorian Cantus firmus (Et vitam venturi saeculi) that constitutes almost half of the entire work.
Apart from the very high technical and contrapuntal level of this long composition, there is its perfect enjoyment in both playing it with recorders and listening to it.
Our edition needed only minor interventions to the parts of the two basses, which in a few places were moved to the upper octave.

Alessandro Scarlatti (1660 - 1725):  Largo variato in F major
source: Sonata XXIV from Concerti di Flauto, Violini, Violetta, e Basso di Diversi Autori (Naples 1725). Manuscript preserved in the Music conservatories of Naples
scoring: AB
Arranged from the original score for treble recorder and violin. Divisions are editorial.
The arrangement follows quite exactly the original score, since the first line was already thought for a treble recorder, while the lower line – although it was thought for two violins in unison – perfectly fits a bass recorder.

Anonymous (XVII cent.):  Simphonie in C major
source: A Collection of Several Simphonies and Airs in Three Parts ([London] 1688), No. 28
scoring: AA (Bc)
The original score is in Bb major, but indeed it works better a tone up, in C.
As you may see from the original parts, in our edition all the quavers (eighth notes) placed after dots have been reduced to semiquavers (sixteenth notes) as prescribed by the baroque style. Furthermore, groups of two quavers have been normalised to dotted quaver + semiquaver when requested by imitation with other parts.

scoring: A (Harpsichord)
Arranged from the original score for solo harpsichord in C minor.
The Nineteenth century edition of the collected works by Purcell contains a useful table that shows and translates all the graces (embellishments) used by the composer in his keyboard music. I used it to realise my recorded performance and included it in my PDF edition of this Ground.

Jan Jaap Langereis (1962 - ):  Vivaldi in Aria Curva
scoring: AAA
I composed this piece at end of September 2019, almost completely in my head, riding my bike back home from my choir rehearsal. Once at home, I wrote it down.
It’s an ode to Vivaldi, full of clichés and well-known melodies from his Quattro Stagioni concertos. The central piece is the Stabat Mater’s melody, one of my favourite pieces.
Jan Jaap Langereis

About the title
In the beginning was the album A Rainbow in Curved Air (1967) by Terry Riley: a seminal work for the development of progressive music in the late Sixties and in the Seventies. Then, the progressive group Curved Air – who took its name from that album – recorded Vivaldi (1970), a piece obviously inspired by the music of the Venetian composer; its theme is the beginning of Vivaldi in Aria Curva.

Henry Purcell (1659 - 1695):  St Martin’s Lane
source: The Virtuous Wife (1694) - Z 611
scoring: SATB
This is the arrangement of a movement from the suite composed by Purcell for the comedy The Virtuous Wife in 1694.
The bare textless melody is found in other sources; above all in Playford’s The Second Part of the Dancing Master (1696) with the title St Martin’s Lane; also, in French sources with the title La Furstemberg.
We actually do not know who composed the melody: in my opinion it could be a popular tune that Purcell arranged making it popular.

Anonymous (XVIII cent.):  Sonata in F major
source: Manuscrit musical 161. Manuscript preserved in Paris: Bibliothéque Municipale de Versailles, No. 7
scoring: AA
Hardly this piece can be defined a «Sonata», since it just consists of two fast movements.
The absence of slow movements may be caused by the style of the composition, based on the trumpet obbligo. That is, the melody mainly uses natural harmonics and play staccato with plenty of repeated notes, like a trumpet plays.

Anonymous (XVI cent.):  O Heyligh zaligh Bethlehem, Old Dutch Christmas carol
scoring: SSATB
The source of this arrangement is a collection of songs, both sacred and secular, edited in Germany by Heinrich Albert in 1648. The song bears sacred German lyrics beginning with «Nimm dich o meine seel in acht», but the music had been already used in the Netherlands with the sacred lyrics beginning with «O Heyligh zaligh Bethlehem».
The melody was also used by van Eyck for his variations: see the related entry above.

Anonymous (XVI cent.):  Wohlauf, gen Bethlehem in Eil’, Old German Christmas carol
scoring: AATB
The source of this German carol is the Weihnachtsalbum (1887) by Karl Riedel (1827 - 1888). Riedel claims that the lyrics are of the XV century, but does not say anything about the music. In all likelihood, the melody is original, while the harmonisation could be by himself.
I arranged the whole composition for recorders, heavily changing some passages of the lower parts and adding some divisions on the repeat of the first two lines.

source: Twelve Scotch and Twelve Irish Airs with Variations (London 1748), No. 18
scoring: A (Bc)
Transposed from the original score for flute and continuo in A major.
The line of the bass is placed under the first eight bars only in the original print. Apparently, it must be repeated all the way until the end of the piece, but that does not always work; so I had to change the line of the bass – when necessary – to adapt it to the succesive sections.
