The richly ornamented viols from the workshop of the instrument maker Joachim Tielke are familiar to all viol players. Few of them however know, that one of his sons, Gottfried Tielke, was a reknown gamba player at the court of Kassel. His appealing compositions came down to us in tablature notation. They are also of interest because they provide information about how this music was played through numerous fingerings and other notational elements. Our edition contains a transcription to modern notation and a complete facsimile of the manuscript.
