I will try to vary the given instrumentation on the score. Print more than one part and be ready to play a different voice if possible so we can play loud and soft, for example, as well as to bring out the musical texture of the pieces. Most of the composers are known to us, though Floriano Canale will be a new one. I'm looking forward to exploring together two of his charming canzonas. Finally, Schein's Suite 16 from Banchetto musicale is a delightful set of 5 dances in 5 parts with fantastic sonorities and rhythms, especially in the inner voices.
