William Babell (c. 1690 - 1723):  Concerto II in D major (C major) - Op. 3, No. 2
source: Concertos in 7 Parts. Op. 3 (London [1726])
scoring: D or S (Strings, Bc)

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

Babell conceived his composition in D major carefully, and the violins often reach the lowest note of the instrument (G2); hence, to transpose the concerto a tone lower in C major, I had to adapt some passages of the strings. The soprano part in C 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.

Jacob van Eyck (c. 1589 - 1657):  Courant, of Ach treurt myn bedroefde
source: Der Fluyten Lust-hof (Amsterdam 1649-54), No. 11
scoring: C

In this piece, van Eyck scrambles plain melody and divisions. The whole can be easily sorted as showed in my edition. This is done to reach a better comprehension of the piece’s structure.

Antonio Vivaldi (1678 - 1741):  Sonata IV in F major - RV 20
source: Sonate a violino e basso per il cembalo. Op. 2 (Venice 1709), No. 4
scoring: A (Bc)

I decided to transcribe and adapt for recorder this sonata because its last movement is found – already arranged for recorder – in Sonata 3, attributed to Valentini in the manuscript CF-V-23: Sinfonie di Varij Autori. We do not know why that sonata contains the Corrente of this one, but I thought that the whole Vivaldi sonata was worth being adapted for recorder.

Bach’s sacred music is a plentiful source of music for recorders in any kind of combinations. So, I decided to transcribe parts meant for recorders found in Bach’s cantatas in a series titled Recorder Parts in Bach’s Sacred Music.

This series has a twofold aim: providing parts for professional performances and giving everyone eager to practice recorder a fundamental collection of exercises.

These parts are to be played by two treble recorders at Kammerton, which is a tone lower of the Kirchenton, and in fact the autograph score notated them in French clefs with a flat (F major) while the other instruments read their parts in Eb major with two flats.

Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 - 1750):  Air: Mein Seelenschatz ist Gottes Wort, Cantata «Gleichwie der Regen und Schnee vom Himmel fällt» - BWV 18
source: Recorder Parts in Bach’s Sacred Music
scoring: AA
We can infer from the previous movements of this cantata that this aria as well was supposed to be played by two treble recorders in F tuned at Kammerton, while all the other instruments were tuned at Kirchenton, a tone higher. And indeed the original score presents the recorder parts a tone higher in F major (without flat).
Unfortunately, the recorder line reaches the low D (E as read by the recorders) at bars 7 and 40. We do not know whether the specific recorders used for this cantata were capable to descend to that note, but we could easily transpose the four Es an octave above: this in fact happens in several recorder concerti by Vivaldi in the «tutti» sections.

These parts were to be played by two treble recorders doubling two viols (viole). Since the treble recorders were possibly tuned at Kammerton, which was a tone lower of the Kirchenton, the part must be read a tone higher, in A minor, .

Charles Dieupart (post 1667 - c. 1740):  5e Suitte in F major / Bb major / C major
source: Six suittes de clavessin pour un violon et flûte avec une basse de viole et un archilut (Amsterdam 1701), No. 5
scoring: A or C (Bc)

Besides the violin – which seems to be the first choice – and the transverse flute, these six suites may be played on two different sizes of recorders; the first four on a «flute de voix» and the last two on a «flute de quatre». The voice flute is a recorder in D – tuned a tone above the common tenor recorder, while the fourth flute is a recorder in Bb, hence tuned a tone below the common descant (soprano) recorder. The name of the latter shows that the treble (alto) recorder was always the pivot of the recorder family, since «fourth» or «quatre» underlines that a Bb recorder was tuned four notes apart from the common treble recorder. Hence, we have a fifth recorder (the common descant in C) and also a sixth one (recorder in D), the latter very popular in England at the beginning of the 18th century.

The treble recorder also dictated the fingering of all the family; in fact, all the other sizes (descant included) were played transposing the music to fit a fingering in F. This is the reason of the rubrics that Dieupart wrote at top of his suites; for instance, the first suite in A major reads: «Cette Suitte se doit jouer en C sol ut sur une flute de voix». In fact, playing a D recorder with alto fingering and reading that suite in C major a third above renders the music in A major.

For all these reasons, we provide a transposed part of the recorder, useful to read the music on a recorder in D (or in Bb when applied) as it were a treble in F; furthermore, the suites are also transposed in different keys to make them convenient to more common sizes of recorders.
