Corelli - Concerto grosso in G minor, Op. 6, No. 8 (Christmas Concerto) *

Monteverdi - L'Orfeo

Purcell - Dido and Aeneas


*The concerto bears the inscription Fatto per la notte di Natale (made for the night of Christmas). Its composition date is uncertain, but there is a record of Corelli having performed a Christmas concerto in 1690 for the enjoyment of his new patron.

Please select one of the Sonatas.
Please allow a polite question: Why?

There are other pieces on the list which could appear as a collection at first glance (Monteverdi - Selva Morale, Schütz - Schwanengesang, Muffat - Apparatus and many others), however, they are composed as a whole.

Besides, the Rosary Sonatas were clearly composed as one work. You can recognize it by the logical-liturgial sequence of the pieces which follow the sequence that a praying man or woman uses when praying with a rosary.

Furthermore, each of the pieces uses another scordatura, no repetitions, to show as many possibilities as possible.

Okay, I seem to be in the minority on this matter. I know nothing about praying, so I accept whatever it is you're talking about concerning liturgical sequence.

So, I'm taking the Rosary Sonatas and the other music you mentioned above. I trust that satisfies everybody.
