David Funck (1648-c.1699): Stricturae Viola-di Gambicae - consort music

Album Summary

>Funck, David : Stricturae Viola de Gambicae
Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The first recording of the complete consort music of little known 17th century composer David Funck. The 1677 publication Strictuae Viola-di Gambicae is the only surviving music by David Funck (1648-1699), of whom very little else is known. Stricturae Viola-di Gambice is a collection of dance suites for four viols. This recording features performances by influential performers in the early music scene, hailing from Oberlin, Julliard, Yale, McGill and Boston University.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
I found the music and the playing enjoyable. They might be used by cello groups looking for chamber music, perhaps with viola on top. Ahrendt plays tenor viol in the suite in G. The disc is in a convenient paper cover that takes up much less room than a jewel case.
