Mainz: Schott, Ed.2316, 1933. Plate B.S.S. 33743b* (viola).
From the uploader's library. Only the Viola part has a full blown Title Page which may explain the inclusion of a plate number found missing on the Violin & Bass parts. See my Talk Page.
|Work Title||IX Ricercari a tre voci|
|Instrumentation||Three instruments not specified|
- The original parts were named "Cantus", "Tenor", and "Bassus" (although the middle stave is in alto clef). According to the editors notes', the Venetian tradition would have been viols or viols di gamba. However, there was also a tradition of brass ensembles and recorder ensembles. Therefore the most likely combinations of the time would have been violin + 2 violas da gamba / violin + viola + cello / 3 recorders / cornet + 2 trombones
