This volume presents divisions by Bassano (1591) and Dalla Casa (1584) on two six-part chansons, which, like many pieces chosen by the Italians for diminution purposes, go back well into the first half of the 16th century. The two pieces here are A La Fontaine and Arousez Vo Violette. A copy of LPMREP8a is also included which contains score & parts for 6 voices/ instruments.

About Ricercate e Passaggi

This series presents, in a highly practical format, most of the really worthwhile material from the treatises of Girolamo Dalla Casa, (1584), Giovanni Bassano, (1585/1591), Richardo Rognino (1592), Francesco Rognoni (1620), Vicenzo Bonizzi (1626), Aurelio Virgiliano and others. The emphasis is on providing ricercate and other examples of decorated music that can be used a number of ways with various combinations of instruments.
