Besides Buxtehudes fourteen trio sonatas, which where
published as op.1 and op.2 shortly before the end of the seventh century, there
are some further instrumental sonatas that have come down to us in manuscript
form. The present sonata for violin, viola da gamba and basso continuo belongs
to this group of the so called manuscript-sonatas. This sonata
is distinguished by its simple and clear structure: two ostinato sections
(Chaconnes) are separated by a merely ten-measure long Adagio.
