William Babell (c. 1690 - 1723):  Concerto III in E minor (D minor) - Op. 3, No. 3
source: Concertos in 7 Parts. Op. 3 (London [1726])
scoring: D or S (Strings, Bc)

Our edition contains both the score in E minor – for a sixth flute (descant recorder in D) – and a transposed adaptation of the same concerto in D minor.

Babell conceived his composition in E minor carefully, and the violins often reach the lowest note of the instrument (G2); hence, to transpose the concerto a tone lower, I had to adapt some passages of the strings. The soprano part in D minor can be used to play the sixth flute using fingering in C.

It is worth remembering that the original recorder part was notated in G minor, since the only fingering used in England in the 18th century was that for a treble recorder.

scoring: D or S (Strings, Bc)

Our edition contains both the score in A major – for a sixth flute (descant recorder in D) – and a transposed adaptation of the same concerto in G major.

Babell conceived his composition in A major carefully, and the violins often reach the lowest note of the instrument (G2); hence, to transpose the concerto a tone lower, I had to adapt some passages of the strings. The soprano part in G major can be used to play the sixth flute using fingering in C. It is worth remembering that the original recorder part was notated in F major, since the only fingering used in England in the 18th century was that for a treble recorder.

Quirino Colombani (? - 1735):  Sonata a oboe solo in F major
source: Ms. CF-V-23: Sinfonie di varij autori. Manuscript preserved in Parma: Biblioteca Palatina, No. 18
scoring: A (Bc)

The original title of the piece is badly cropped, but it could be read as «Sonata a Oboe solo». In all likelihood, this work is a transcription of an original oboe sonata in D major transposed to F major for treble recorder. Evidence of that is the coherent presence of «B#» (that is, B natural notes notated with a sharp instead of a natural) in the score; that is, actual G# notes transposed a minor third above.

Anonymous:  Minuetto in C major (2)
source: Ms. CF-V-23: Sinfonie di varij autori. Manuscript preserved in Parma: Biblioteca Palatina, No. 28
scoring: AA (Bc)

At end of the Sonata No. 15 of this manuscript, there are two minuets that managed to escape the attention both of the early copyist who compiled the table of contents and of modern editors. In all likelihood, that happened because the two minuets follow the sonata's minuet with no gaps at all. Nevertheless, they clearly do not belong to the sonata because of the different key (C major against F major) and because at end of the fourth movement, the copyist wrote «Segue Minuetto» (a minuet follows) – singular.

Anonymous:  My Lady Carey's Dompe
source: Ms. Royal Appendix 58 (c. 1525), British Library, London
scoring: A (Harpsichord)

Here is what Willi Apel says about this piece (published in Historical Anthology of Music, vol. I, Harvard, 1946):
This interesting composition is contained in a manuscript in the British Museum which was written about 1525, the earliest preseved source of English keyboard music aside from the Robertsbridge Codex. «Dump» is believed to be a lamenting and sorrowful type of English or Irish song. Shakespeare, however mentions «doeful doumps» and «merry dumps» (Romeo and Juliet, IV 4). The present dance is particularly interesting because of the ostinato character of the accompaniment. In a way, it can be considered as a series of continuous variations on a tonic-dominant harmony as a «theme». Thus it belongs in the same category with the passacaglia or chaconne of the 17th century.

Pietro Castrucci (1679 - 1752):  Sonata I in F major

scoring: A (Bc)

This is indeed the violinistic Sonata V from Op. 1 by Castrucci transposed a fifth above and adapted for recorder by an unknown contemporary editor. The original source for recorder is not quite correct in various places and we had to compare it with the original print for violin and find the best solutions for small and less small issues.
