Transcribed and edited by Andrew Fowler
This is a further set of pieces that can be played on five viols – Tr. T. T. T. B. (Also published in alternative clefs) following on from Consorts for Five Book 2. Although pieces are of a similar standard, some are more rhythmically challenging especially in the inner parts.
This edition consists of consort repertory of the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, some of which originally had texts for singing, while others were originally intended solely for instruments. Dynamics have been omitted but bowings have been included. Includes advice about the art of adding divisions. Bransles Doubles Pierre-Francisque Caroubel, Volte – arr.
