This recording focuses primarily on the 3-voice disposition which was to become the standard of the next generations. The recorder transcriptions of the Purcell were performed by Kees Boeke, while the other works accommodate these instruments already. However, the recorder was not especially popular in Italy during the period, with the possible exception of some interest by Merula.
Publications are Falconieri's Il primo libro di canzone (Naples, 1650) which also includes Butler's work, Purcell's Sonnata's of III Parts (London, 1683), Turini's Madrigali a 1, 2 e 3 voci (Venice, 1621), Merula's Canzoni overo Sonate concertante (Venice, 1637), Castello's Sonate concertate in stil moderno, Libro primo (Venice, 1621), as well as Purcell's misnamed "Four Part" Sonatas in manuscript.
