These sonatas for three violas da gamba number among the most important and well-known works for this formation, whose distinctive feature is the pleasant, sonorous, and harmonically rich sound of the three bass instruments. The sonatas are presented in a new edition that conforms to today’s concepts of faithfulness to the original, but is simultaneously suitable for practical use. Included in our edition are the facsimiles of the sources from Durham Cathedral Library, so that anyone can reconsider our editorial decisions.
