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.

scoring: G or A (2 Violins, Cello, Bc)

In all likelihood, this piece was conceived for a treble recorder in G, but it easily can be performed on a treble in F as well. For the recorder in G, an extra transposed part is added to read it using F fingering.

FOREWORD

This edition of the Atys sonata was begun many decades ago in Iowa City, Iowa by Robert Paul Block (1942-2001). Bob Block was passionate about early music, the recorder and sharing his love of music with our small Iowa community and with his editing work far beyond Iowa City. Bob died many years ago and left an unfinished, handwritten edition of the Atys sonata as well as other in-progress transcriptions of duos. After his death, as much as I can tell, the work  passed from one set of hands to another’s with no one knowing how to best honor the work that Bob had begun.

Many years have passed… Andrea Bornstein has very generously helped with finishing the editing of the Atys sonata. I am sure that Bob would be very happy to see his work included on www.gardane.info, and to see that the edition of the Atys sonata he had begun so long ago, is no longer hidden away, and can now be enjoyed and played by many recorder players.

Thank you Andrea!

PREFACE

A lot of estimable minor composers wrote music for flute duet or matched pairs of other melody instruments. The present edition draws upon works of both types, some of it transposed to fit treble recorders and some not.

Since some of the most important treble recorder duets today (by Telemann, in particular) are transpositions of flute music, and since 18th-century recorder players applied a system of clef transposition to flute music (a practice specifically mentioned in prefaces to early publications by Telemann, Schickhardt and others), it seems like a reasonable idea to write out some transpositions from flute music that recorder players may find enjoyable to play.

ATYS (no first name known) (1715 - 1784). French creole flutist, composer and teacher. Born in St. Domingue in what is now Haiti, died in Paris.

Published several sets of flute duets and quartets, and two methods for flute; an op. 2 set of sonatas is lost. Atys was well known as one of the first flutist to use crescendo and diminuendo instead of terraced dynamics. His op. 1, the Six sonates en duo en forme de conversation (Paris [1754]) is the source for the work included here.

Editorial procedure

Aside from supplying transposition for the pieces that need it, the editions presented here are Urtext. All editorial accretions are clearly marked, except for the omission of a few accidentals to bring the notation into line with current practice.

Performance

The only real problem, once the use of notes inegales is decided, is the interpretation of appoggiaturas. While I have in some instance offered suggestions in the text, nothing will substitute for reading Hotteterre and Quantz on the subject.

Heinrich Isaac (c. 1450 - 1517):  Innsbruck, ich muss dich lassen
scoring: TTBB or TTTB

As many compositions of early Renaissance, this one has a quite complex story. Certainly, the theme of a well-known popular song (Innsbruck Ich muss dich lassen) was set by Isaac in the Christe secundum of his Missa Carminum. This piece is set for four male parts in a late print published by the German publisher Rhau: Opus Decem Missarum (Wittenberg 1540); the same piece is set for three voices, and with its original title, in an earlier manuscript –  MSS 328-331 (compiled around 1523) – found at the University of Munich. The manuscript set of the same song contains at least a mistake and lacks the second voice.

It is possible that Isaac conceived the Christe secundum for three voices and the four part had been added later by other musicians. These additions were common practice in the first years of the 16th century, when the «modern» style preferred four-part setting to the ancient three-part setting.
