Opus 37 was conceived for solo piano, but it works well if we separate the melody line from the rest of the score and assign it to another instrument.
The original score is in D minor.

Henry Purcell (1659 - 1695):  Ground - ZD 221
scoring: A (Harpsichord)
Arranged from the original score for solo harpsichord in C minor.
The attribution to Henry Purcell has been questioned, since the piece appears at the beginning of a harpsichord suite ascribed to William Croft, and indeed catalogued as D 221.

source: Venetian manuscript of the end of the Seventeenth Century
scoring: AAB (Bc)
These are two excerpts of a long cantata in D major for two sopranos, bass and continuo, here transposed in Bb major.
The composer was emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, so I think he has been the highest-ranking composer ever; and he was even good!

scoring: AAATB (Bc)
This minuet belongs to the Concerto I in C major, originally for two violins, two oboes, bass instrument and continuo.
Its style is quite close to the battaglia form, and – if so – it represents a quite late example of the genre.

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.

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.
What is the meaning of these icons?    7
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.
What is the meaning of these icons?   5
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.

Henry Purcell (1659 - 1695):  Ground - ZT 681
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.

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

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.

Andrea Bornstein (1956 - ):  Sedanny or Dargason - early English dance tune
scoring: SATB
The source of the monody Sedanny or Dargason is The English Dancing Master, published in London in 1651 by John Playford.
Mine is a free arrangement which intentionally does not respect – at least partially – the implied original harmony.
