The German composer Johann Michael Nicolai was an instrumentalist at the Stuttgart court. His sonorous Sonata in C major for 3 bass viols, which has never before been published, is a major contribution to the repertoire for this in-strumentation. The third viol functions both as solo and bass instrument. Thus, the Sonata can be played even if a keyboard instrument is not available.
