The publication with the original title '40 Airs Anglois pour / la Flute à un Dessus & une Basse. / dont les 16 Prémiers sont de / Monsieur Finger / & les 24 suivants de / Mr george BinghAM, / dédié à Messieurs ses Disciples / livre troisièMe. / A AMsterDAM / Chez pierre Mortier. Libraire sur le Vygendam / Chez qui l’on vend toute Sorte de Musique N° 213', is the third of a series of four collections, published in Amsterdam between 1702 and 1706, including a total amount of 170 arias and four sonatas for different ensembles: solo recorder, two recorders, recorder and continuo.
The success of the two previous volumes, and of this third collection in particular, is demonstrated by the fact that the latter, first published by Estienne Roger in 1703, was reprinted in 1706 by Pierre Mortier using the same plates. The frontispiece conforms to the first edition but presents a significant variation in the title, in which the words «pour la flute» are added between the first and the second line, manifesting a designation for recorder which was not so obvious in the title of the previous collections.

Series Details

General Editor: Nicola Sansone

This series intends both to propose the original repertoire of the past centuries, with the matching of well-known composers and pieces with others less known or still unpublished, and to promote present-day music in all its various aspects, in belief that Recorder has the right to a special place in an advanced musical civilization, not only for its role of historical memory or for its educational and recreative functions, but also and above all as a musical instrument 'translator' and 'messenger' between different languages, bearer and promoter of an active, sharable and open musical culture.
