Besides Buxtehude’s fourteen trio sonatas, which where published as op.1 and op.2 shortly before the end of the seventh century, there are some further instrumental sonatas that have come down to us in manuscript form. The present sonata for violin, viola da gamba and basso continuo belongs to this group of the so called “manuscript-sonatas.” This sonata is distinguished by its simple and clear structure: two ostinato sections (Chaconnes) are separated by a merely ten-measure long Adagio.
