Giovanni Gentile (? - post 1649):  Canone a due voci cavato dalle lettere vocali del nome e cognome dell’eminentissimo e reverendissimo cardinale Brancaccio
source: Solfeggiamenti et ricercari a due voci (Rome 1642)
scoring: STB

This composition is found at the end of both part-books of the collection. It is based on a retrograde canon that praises the dedicatee, Cardinal Francesco Maria Brancaccio, in two ways: the most evident is given by the canon singing «Franciscus Maria Brancatius» throughout the piece; the second is subtler and relies on the early technique of transforming the dedicatee’s name in solmization syllables in the same way used by Josquin in his mass Hercules Dux Ferrariae.

The way in which Giovanni Gentile managed the canon with all its technicalities shows that he was a quite skilled – though unrecognized –composer.

The solmization syllables in the transcription are editorial.

Giovanni Gentile (? - post 1649):  Ricercata Prima
source: Solfeggiamenti et ricercari a due voci (Rome 1642), No. 1
scoring: ST or TB

In his foreword to the reader, among other interesting things about didactic praxis, Marco Aurelio Desideri – editor of this collection and pupil of the main composer – explains that these duos can be performed in two ways. At the beginning of each part there are two clefs, one with a flat in the key signature and one without it:

That allows the performers to play the duo in two different keys just switching to the second clef. Using the clef at left, the music will result a fifth lower than using the main key, which is the right one.

Following this rule, we trascribed each ricercata twice.

You may read the whole foreword to the reader here.

Antonio Vivaldi (1678 - 1741):  Concerto II - Les Plaisirs de l’Été in C major
source: Le Printems ou Les Saisons. Amusantes Concertos d’Antonio Vivaldi (Paris 1739), No. 2
Edited and/or arranged by Nicolas Chédeville
scoring: A (Transverse Flute, Violin, Bc)
The collection Le Printems by Chédeville contains six Vivaldian concertos taken from Il cimento dell’armonia e dell’inventione and arranged for solo musette or vielle with the accompaniment of violin, flute and cello/organ. According to Chedéville’s suggestions, the part of the [transverse] flute can be played on another violin.
The musette has a strict range (G3-D4) that well fits the treble recorder; hence, the French repertoire of the former instrument can be played on the latter with no adjustments at all.

Franz Tunder (1614 - 1667):  Da pacem Domine, Sinfonia a 7 viole
scoring: AATTB (2 Bass Instruments)
Despite the fact that this piece was conceived for viols, it works well with low recorders too, providing the two lowest parts are played on two bass instruments, like viols or cellos.
The title «Da pacem Domine» does not seem to be related to the well-known melody (see a list of pieces based on that melody).

This brief passacaglia originally is the second movement of the Vivaldi concerto RV 112 for strings. Here it is presented in two versions: the former for treble recorder and harpsichord, with viol (or viola) and cello ad libitum; the latter for an STB trio of recorders, with or without harmonic accompaniment.

Costanzo Porta (c. 1528 - 1601):  Agnus Dei II, Missa «La Sol Fa Re Mi»
source: Missarum liber primus (Venice 1578)
scoring: SSATTTTB or SSAAATTB

La sol fa re mi is probably the most famous solmization series exploited as a compositional obbligo. The theorist Heinrich Glareanus states that this famous syllable series derived from the phrase «Lascia fare mi» that Cardinal Ascanio Sforza of Milan used when making promises that he very seldom kept. Josquin – the first composer to use this obbligo – was in the service of Cardinal Ascanio Sforza in the penultimate decade of the fifteenth century and the theme could have derived from the barzelletta «Lassa fare a mi, non ti curare» developed from Ascanio’s phrase and attributed to Serafino Aquilano, who was also in the service of the prelate and a great friend of Josquin.

Furthermore, Porta in his mass added to this obbligo the canonic one. Three parts ideally sing «La sol fa re mi» in canon (with the Agnus Dei words): the antecedent (T3) is followed by two consequents, T1 at the unison after three breves and T4 a fourth below after one breve.

The Folia variations by Falconieri are interesting because stylistically they can be placed between the Gamba ricercar by Ortiz (Naples 1555) and the seminal Follia by Arcangelo Corelli (1700). Falconieri’s work diverges from the former but does not resemble the latter yet.

source: Le Printems ou Les Saisons. Amusantes Concertos d’Antonio Vivaldi (Paris 1739), No. 6
Edited and/or arranged by Nicolas Chédeville
scoring: A (2 Violins, Bc)
The starting point of this edition is an arrangement by Chédeville of Vivaldian material contained in his work Le Printems ou les saisons. Amusantes concertos d’Antonio Vivaldy. Mis pour les musettes et vielles avec acompagnement de violon, fluste et basse continue (Paris 1739). He took three movements from two different concerti from the opus 8 – Il cimento dell’armonia e dell’inventione (Amsterdam 1725) – of Vivaldi and arranged them for solo musette or vielle with the accompaniment of two violins and cello/organ. The original concerti are: No. 7, «Per Pisendel», RV 242 (the first movement) and No. 9, RV 236 (the last two movements), both in D minor. According to Chedéville’s suggestions, the part of the second violin (which he calls «Violino terzo») can be played on a «Flauto»; that is, a transverse flute. His arrangement is in C minor, a tone below that of the original concerti, to adapt the solo part to the musette, which has a strict range: G3-D4.
I started where Chedéville concluded and re-arranged his potpourri for solo recorder and strings; first, restoring the original key-signature and secondly, revising his arrangement in the light of the original concerti by Vivaldi.

Uccellini’s works were conceived for violins; nevertheless, they may be easily adapted for recorders. This Aria, in particular, smoothly fits two recorders in C, which must be two descants if we want to play the bass line on a bass recorders; otherwise, they can be two tenors.
A passage in the upper line has been slightly edited to ease it for a C recorder.
