Richard Leveridge (1670 - 1758):  A Bacchanal, «Whilst I’m carrousing to cheer up my soul»
source: A collection of songs (London 1727)
scoring: B (Bc)
This beautiful air by Richard Levederidge was conceived for a bass singer and continuo. As usual, the original print also contains a version of the melody transposed for treble recorder. In this case the recorder part is in the same key (G minor), but two octave above. Since the original part perfectly fits a bass recorder, I decided to dedicate this edition to that size of our instrument.

Ercole Bernabei (1622 - 1687):  Ve la dirò cantando
source: Venetian manuscript of the end of the Seventeenth Century
scoring: C (Bc)
An unexpectedly beautiful cantata, perfectly usable even performed without text. The not inconsiderable length makes it an excellent concert piece for a recorder in C.
Certainly Ercole Bernabei is a composer to be studied carefully, even if he only published vocal music.

Giovanni Paolo Cima (c. 1570 - 1630):  Confitemini Domino
source: Concerti ecclesiastici (Milan 1610)
scoring: TT or SS (Bass instrument)
I have devised this arrangement to meet the kind request of our friend FredPaul.
The two upper lines may be played by two tenor recorders or two transverse flutes – or any combination of the two kinds of flutes. The bass line must be played by a viola da gamba or other bass instrument; even a bass recorder can play it if the two upper parts are played on soprano recorders.

Luigi Tenco (1938 - 1967):  Lontano, lontano
source: Duos for treble recorders from well-known ancient and modern melodies, No. 29
scoring: AA
This is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful Italian song ever written.
And it works very well as a recorder exercise with its tonal transitions of semitones from C major to Eb major.

This motet is here presented in two different editions: the first one, simply transposed a tone above, suits a soprano or a tenor recorder.
The second one contains editorial divisions of the recorder part.
In both cases, the bass line may be performed on a bass recorder, especially when a soprano plays the top line.

This is a good, although unacknowledged, loure: also known as the gigue lourée or gigue lente (slow gigue). The loure is a French Baroque dance, probably originating in Normandy and named after the sound of the instrument of the same name (a type of musette).
A typical later example of it is in the French Suite No.5 in G major, BWV 816 by J.S. Bach.
