Ricercar in three parts (Christofano Piochi, 1675)

The "Ricercari a tre voci" from Piochi's Libro Terzo are beautiful ensemble music for recorders or other instruments. The tessuturae require no changes when played on soprano, alto and tenor recorders.

The editions are based on a facsimile of the original partbooks. All accidentals are original. I have only added bar lines and beams to make the music easier legible.
