This canon which is published here in a new edition has the form of a three-movement Italian Trio Sonata. The two upper voices follow each other in the manner of a canon and are set over a contrapuntal bass. Because the viol parts have only a moderate pitch range and practically no double-stops, the piece is equally suitable for violins or flutes (played an octave higher than written). Performance by a high and a low instrument is also possible. To facilitate such options we have notated the upper voices in both alto and treble clef.
