Matthew Locke's For several Friends is a collection of 54 two-part movements such as Fantazie, Pavan, Ayre, Courante, Saraband, Jigg for a high and a low instrument. It has survived in a collective manuscript with consort music, which also contains Locke's well-known duos for two bass viols. It is therefore reasonable to understand the present pieces as duos for treble and bass viol. We also recommend a performance which includes a continuo instrument. The movements can be subdivided into suites on the basis of keys. The movements can be subdivided into suites on the basis of keys. They are of medium difficulty with some unusual and unexpected harmonies, as we know from Locke's other compositions. This music unfolds its effect all the better the more often you play it. Our edition includes two scores and another one that includes a continuo realisation.
