'La lectura de The Parley of Instruments supone un total acierto … tanto en la recreación estilistica como en la factura de las lecturas' (Scherzo, Spain)
The Duos for two bass viols were written in 1652. They divide into four three-movement suites or a pair of six-movement suites, and they use a pattern—two short fantasias followed by a triple-time dance—that is also found in William Lawes’ viol consort music.

from notes by Peter Holman © 1995

Les duos pour deux violes de gambe composés en 1652 peuvent être divisées en quatre suites de trois mouvements chacune, ou en une paire de suites à six mouvements, et elles suivent un schéma—deux fantaisies courtes suivies par une danse à trois temps—que l’on trouve aussi dans la musique d’ensemble de violes de William Lawes.

Français: Isabelle Dubois

Diese Duos für zwei Baßviolen lassen sich in vier dreisätzige Suiten oder in ein Paar sechssätziger Suiten einteilen, und sie folgen einem Muster—zwei kurze Fantasien, denen ein Tanz im Tripeltakt folgt—das auch in William Lawes’ Musik für Violenkonzert zu finden ist.
