I guess that many of us already know this piece, since it is one of the few pieces that contains a 'bastarda' part for the trombone. But for the ones that never heard of it, here is a new recording of it (the first? I could not find any other recording...) :-)


It is nice to mention that the piece has the subtitle: 'Per il Deo Gratias', which suggests that it was intended as a substitute for the 'Deo Gratias' at the end of a (Catholic) mass (I forgot which book mentioned this, maybe the Performer's Guide to 17th-century Music?). I don't know how common it was to use 'chamber music' like this in masses, but it seems very interesting to me!

Anyway, hopefully you enjoy the short video!

Yet another lovely bit from you!
I particularly liked the lack of vibrato all around. VERY nice mix of timbres, helped along by the lack of vibrato.
Thanks for, once again, music played well enough that I listen instead of analyzing!
