This is an urtext/critical/scholarly/scientific edition (or a simple re-engraving). Any commentary or critical apparatus, if protected by copyright, should not be included in the scan(s) available here.

In Canada, new editions/re-engravings of public domain works (when not including new original material) should be in the public domain due to failing to meet the threshold of originality. In most European Union countries, these editions (except new original material) are generally protected for no more than 25 years from publication (30 years in Poland), and only if the edition is published after the copyrights of the original creator(s) have expired. In the United States, copyright can only apply to new creative work, and the re-engraving of a public domain piece (not including new additions of creative material) should not qualify for a new copyright, despite copyright claims (which properly would only apply to new material).

You may need to check the publication date and details of the work's first publication in order to determine the work's copyright status, especially for the United States, as the copyright on the original work may not have expired.

Reissued as Bärenreiter-Ausgabe 426.

Executable on oboes, C flutes, violins. Nice music, and good for progressing beginners. Several wrong notes were corrected, and some violin bowings (NO slurs) added. "Vierdank (Johann) played organ and composed; Stralsund [Germany--ed.], 1641."

Is this among the capricci on the cpo recording (I haven't heard the latter) 777 205-2 recorded in 2005? (reviewed here)? Is it part of the Capricci, Canzoni und Sonaten Rostock, 1641 collection and if so what number in it (if that can be determined :) ) (Schissel)
