These two similar trios for violin, viola da gamba, and violoncello are found in the Ledenburg Collection as anonymous works. On the basis of stylistic characteristics, we were able to attribute them to Carl Friedrich Abel. These charming works enrich the early Classical repertoire for trios with violin and viola da gamba. They were hitherto unknown and appear in print for the first time in this edition. The Ledenburg Collection in Osnabrück was discovered only in 2015. It primarily contains viol music from the time around 1750. The most important works in the collection are the twelve Fantasias for Viola da Gamba Solo by Georg Philipp Telemann, which were long thought to have been lost.
