Henry Carey (1687 - 1743):  Salley in our Alley with Divisions
source: The delightful pocket companion for the German flute (London c. 1763), No. 3
scoring: A

«Sally in Our Alley was exceptionally successful and has been performed by many singers through to the modern» (source: wikipedia). Carey composed the original melody only and had nothing to do with these anonymous divisions. The beaming is original throughout and indeed turns the time-signature into 3/4.

The work has been transposed a third above to adapt it to a treble recorder. Our edition of the original setting for flute is available in the EtCetera section of the site (see the related entry in the LINKS menu).

source: Little consort of three parts (London 1656), No. 4

These tiny suites in four movements were certainly conceived for string instruments (three viols or two violins and a cello).

Domenico Galli (1649 - 1691):  Sonata I in D minor
source: Trattenimento musicale sopra il violoncello a’ solo (Modena 1691), No. 1
scoring: A

Adapted from the original score for cello. Our edition of the original score is available at the EtCetera section of the site (see the related entry under le LINKS menu).

From The New Grove Online:

Galli's only known music is Trattenimento musicale sopra il violoncello a’ solo (Modena, 1691), a set of 12 sonatas for solo cello (like his contemporaries at the Este court, G.B. Vitali and Giuseppe Colombi, he was himself a cellist). Precedents for his sonatas can be found in various works for solo cello by Colombi. Others by the two Bolognese composers G.B. Degli Antoni and Domenico Gabrielli probably influenced him still more: Degli Antoni’s set of 12 Ricercate appeared in 1687, and Gabrielli published a similar set of seven Ricercary in January 1689, shortly after spending a year at the Este court. The appearance of Galli’s sonatas in 1691 seems more than just coincidental: they could well have been inspired by his close contact with Gabrielli.
