This wonderful duo is based on a well-known chanson by Claudin de Sermisy.

Our transcription presents the original score and a transposed version a fourth below. The narrow range of both parts makes them suitable for a wide combination of recorders and other instruments.

scoring: ATTB or TTBB
This piece belongs to collection of ensemble dance pieces that has an important place in the history of instrumental music of the 16th century, since it is not only the first but also one of the rare Italian publications of its kind.
The narrow range of all the parts makes them suitable for any kind of instruments, not least the crumhorn.

Maternus Beringer (1580 - post 1632):  Domine in multitudine misericordiae tuae, canon at the octave below
source: Musicae, das ist der freyen lieblichen Singkunst (Nuremberg 1610)
scoring: ST or AB
This canon introduces the pupil to the usage of the exachordum molle (soft hexachord); that is the notes spanning from F to D with a B flat. These six notes must always be sung «ut re mi fa sol la», no matter whether they are flatted or sharped: see the first F# at bar 9 of the antecedent.

Maternus Beringer (1580 - post 1632):  Quemadmodum desiderat cervus, canon at the octave below
source: Musicae, das ist der freyen lieblichen Singkunst (Nuremberg 1610)
scoring: ST or AB
This canon spans just a minor seventh from C to B flat; that is a natural hexachord plus a semitone. After Beringer made sing the pupil a canon that spanned six notes from C to A (natural hexachord), he introduced here the concept of “one note over the La” (Hexachordum mit einer Noten nechst über das La), which must be always pronounced “Fa” and sung just a semitone higher than La (B flat).
The narrow range of this canon fits any size of recorders, taking for granted that the pair should play the canon at one octave distance.

source: Musicae, das ist der freyen lieblichen Singkunst (Nuremberg 1610)
scoring: ST or AB
This canon spans just a sixth from C to A; that is a natural hexachord. Indeed, this is the first vocal exercise with lyrics included in Beringer’s treatise. The narrow range fits any size of recorders, taking for granted that the pair should play the canon at one octave distance.

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.

Henry Purcell (1659 - 1695):  Ground - ZD 221
scoring: A (Harpsichord)
Arranged from the original score for solo harpsichord in C minor.
