The Work

This is a collection of 50 dances by Johann Rosenmüller for 2 treble instruments (for example violins or cornettos), one bass (viola da gamba, cello or trombone) and basso continuo for organ. This collection, Paduanen, Alemanden, Couranten, Balletten, Sarabanden were printed in Leipzig in 1645 and was the first music by Rosenmüller to appear in print. The source used are preserved in Landsbiblioteket in Växjö, who has gratiously provided all copies needed for this work.

This Edition

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 have been converted to modern standard.
