This is a collection of 48 sonatas and dance movements by Dietrich Becker. The collection is divided into 9 suites; eight for 2 violins and continuo, and one for 1 violin, 1 viola da gamba and continuo. This collection, Erster Theil Zwey-stimmiger Sonaten und Suiten was printed in Hamburg in 1674.
The source used for this transcription is a facsimile of the original print. I have always tried to be as close to the original as possible. Editorial changes have been put above the staffs, or within parenthesis. Slashed figures in the continuo have been replaced with their flat/natural or sharp equivalents. All accidentals and clefs have been converted to modern standard. All beaming is added by me.
