14 Canzoni - Score composed by Claudio Merulo (1533-1604). For SATB recorders. Recorder Quartets. Venetian Instrumental Music. Score. Published by London Pro Musica (MM.LPMVM16).

This volume contains most of Merulos surviving instrumental pieces in ensemble form, taken from a variety of sources. Merulo was one of the first important composers to write instrumental canoni. His pieces are elegant amd carefully crafted, but short and to the point. Thanks to Denis Carpenter for the sound sample.
