1736 the French violist and composer Caix d’Hervelois published a collection of four suites for transverse flute and continuo. The first of these appears here in a modern practical edition. These suites offer the same melodic and stylistic appeal that characterize the more known works of Caix d’Hervelois for viola da gamba. The work is of a moderate degree of difficulty. According to the original title it is also especially suited for the pardessus de viole. Of course it can be played on the violin as well.
