Canzon a 6, (1609) - Score and parts (bold theme) composed by Johann Hermann Schein (1586-1630). For SSATTB Recorders. Recorder Sextets etc. German Instrumental Music. Score and Parts. Published by London Pro Musica (MM.LPMGM13).

This remarkable canzon da sonar of Scheins is unusual not only for being in six parts, but for the boldness of the main theme, and for the clear but not at all repetitive formal structure. Apart from the original coda with its pedal point, all the duple-time sections are based entirely on the opening theme. The function of the triple-time secdons, with their playful imitation between the two upper parts, seems to be to provide light relief between the dramatic developments in the main sections. PERFORMANCE: This piece was probably intended primarily for violin consort, or possibly for a mixture of cornetti, violins and sackbuts. However, it will work on a variety of wind and stringed instruments. If recorders are used, I would recommend using an 8-foot bass instrument such as cello, gamba or dulcian. - Bernard Thomas.
