In addition to his large output of vocal music Melchior Franck (c.
1580–1639) also left behind
a number of collections of instrumental dance music. This edition
offers an extensive selection
of these pieces – some of them highly contrapuntal, others of a
folk-like simplicity – written
for a wide variety of instrumental combinations. Franck´s pavanes,
of which only a few have
been individually published until now, are also included, making
this volume all the more
attractive to devotees of early dance music.
