Whereas in Reincken's Hortus musicus the viola da gamba mostly remains in the bass register and frequently doubles the continuo part, Buxtehude offers the instrument more diverse duties: occasionally it doubles the continuo part, or rather embellishes it, and forms a two-part texture with the violin; then, on the other hand, the viol plays completely independent of the continuo part in the alto register, so that a three-part texture is created together with the violin and harpsichord. Our edition consists of a score of the three original parts, three part booklets, and a separate score with a continuo realisation.
