Abel's 6 Easy Sonatas for Viola da Gamba and Continuo - Volume 1: Sonatas 1-3. Sonata I in C Major; Sonata II in A Major; Sonata III in D Major. The solo viol part is presented in both treble and tenor clefs.

Published in 1771 these sonatas were among the last works written for the gamba, and present the player with a rare opportunity to experience the classical style. The technical demands are not especially high, so that these pieces are also very well suited for students. According to the original title they can also be played on the harpsichord or on piano solo, on alto or descant viol, or on violin or flute.
