East: 8 Five-part Fancies for Viol Quintet
These eight fantasies have been available in their original pitches for years however the ranges of each part are on the high side. The basses rarely play on their lowest string, and the treble parts are on their highest fret on the top string for what can seem to be a tedious amount of time.
This new transposed edition, set for two tenors, tenor or bass, and two bass viols, makes playing these pieces easier. And the sound of a consort playing in this range is quite breathtaking!
