Ayres for the Violin: The Fourth Part

Table of Contents

Matteis included two separate tables in his edition, one listing "the most Easy Ayres in ye Book that may be played with the Flute as well as the Violin," and the other "ye Passages & Ayres a little harder to practice upon the Violin with double Stops and divisions." The titles from those tables, which are all in English and include the first 39 pieces, are listed in the first column of the table below. The second column gives the mostly Italian titles that appear in the body of the published edition. The last eight pieces, having been published along with the second treble volume two years after the rest, don't appear in Matteis' tables.
