11 Three-part Fantasias

Arranged for viol consort: treble, tenor and bass or treble, tenor and tenor

Composer Players Instrument Notation Period
Bassano, Giovanni (1558-1617) trio viol Standard Baroque

While the original score is for treble, tenor and bass viol, this edition also includes a version of each Fantasia with a tenor viol substituting for the bass.The intent is to make the music accessible for those viol players with only those instruments. This, of course, involved modifications to the original, but these were necessary in only a small number of places in two of the Fantasias, and many are actually easier to play on tenor and combine better with the upper instruments. All of the scores comfortably span three pages and use large staves for ancient eyes.
