Philip Falle assembled extensive collections of music scores in England from about 1700 to 1730, which are today kept in the Durham Cathedral Library. In this way he made an extraordinarily valuable contribution to the tradition of instrumental music of his time. In this edition we have compiled pieces for viola da gamba solo, which are available in Durham in Falle's manuscript. They are very heterogeneous and give today's players an impression of the liveliness and internationality of the gamba music of the time. Apart from the short preludes by Simpson and Finger, the pieces are previously unpublished.
Errata / Addenda
After the first copies of this edition were printed, we discovered that we had missed an important piece: an otherwise unknown Sarabande by Marais.
