URTEXT EDITION 
This "urtext" or "scholarly" (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in the EU (or 20 years ago in Italy, before 1992 in the former USSR). Hence, the edition is public domain in its country of origin or a government publication. Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum 'threshold of originality' to qualify for copyright as an 'adaptation'. They may not be public domain elsewhere. More information about this can be found here.
Please obey the copyright laws of your country. IMSLP does not assume any sort of legal responsibility or liability for the consequences of downloading files that are not in the public domain in your country.

Misc. Comments

  • La cetra, published in Venice in 1673, is in fact Legrenzi’s Op.11. The printing of La Cetra as Op.10 appears to be an error on the part of the Venetian publisher, who was presumably unaware of Legrenzi's actual Op.10, Acclamationi divote, published in Bologna in 1670. The correct numbering of Legrenzi's publications resumed with Op.12, Cantate, e Canzonette a voce sola, published in Venice in 1676. To add to the confusion, when Legrenzi's Bologna publisher reissued La Cetra in 1682, it retained the titling of the work as Op.10.
  • The final two sonatas in this collection are unusual in several respects. They are Legrenzi's only works to specify the use of viols, and are printed with two sets of clefs, allowing for their performance in different keys depending on the instruments chosen, hence the instruction "O come piace", "or what you will" in the title.
