Where does this music come from?

Rarely heard gems for the viola da gamba, the “king” of string instruments throughout Europe until around 1750.

The music of the eighteenth and seventeenth centuries, and a little into the sixteenth century was so rich with variety and color that we have chosen various styles and nationalities of composers from England, to Italy, Germany, France and the Netherlands, from canonic and contrapuntal music to fanciful programatic operatic and dance music. And the viola da gamba was the supreme instrument for expression and virtuosity during those centuries.
