Philip Falle assembled extensive collections of music scores in England from about 1700 to 1730, which are today kept in the Durham Cathedral Library. In this way he made an extraordinarily valuable contribution to the tradition of instrumental music of his time. In this edition we have compiled pieces for viola da gamba solo, which are available in Durham in Falle's manuscript. They are very heterogeneous and give today's players an impression of the liveliness and internationality of the gamba music of the time. Most worthwhile are certainly the pieces by Louis Heudelinne, which were originally intended for treble viol or violin, but have been transferred by Falle to the bass viol with great success.
