Abstract

This document is a non-scholarly edition of Adriano Banchieri's Canzoni Alla Francese a quattro voci per sonare transcribed for viola ensemble based on the edition of the Banchieri Canzoni edited from the 1st ed. (Venetia:R. Amadino, 1596); edited by Leland Bartholomew belonging to the Music Library of the University of Memphis. An overview of the life of the composer is provided along with the roles and influences of great viola virtuosi such as Lionel Tertis and William Primrose. Subsequent chapters discuss an overview of the canzoni and importance of such transcriptions for pedagogical purposes, and the promise of new transcriptions for developing viola ensembles. A complete transcription of the eleven canzoni is attached to the document.
