Misc. Comments

These may have been for transverse flute, and must have been from Virgiliano's only known publication, a book called Il dolcimelo; according to Grove Music "Aurelio Virgiliano’s Il dolcimelo, ii (c1600) contains ricercate in a similar style for cornetto, violin, transverse flute [traversa] or other instruments. Book iii contains a fingering chart for a D flute with a range of two and a half octaves."
