This is opus 2 though not so labeled in the score. Note Wikipedia entry for composer.
There are two 18th c. printed versions of this set, dated 1728 and 1753. The latter scores no 8 for the 3 parts: 2 violins and bc, while the former scores it for flute/violin, viola da gamba, and continuo (harpsichord/cello). The vdg part assumes a 7-stringed instrument, making bar 43 of the 2nd movt difficult for a 6-stringed player.
A-R editions repub. for date 1728.
