ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Named for a colonial route through central Virginia, Three Notch’d Road is the area’s only professional ensemble that performs a full season of early music on period instruments. Our musicianship is founded on a vigorous historical approach, offering little-known music of the baroque as well as incisive performances of well-known favorites.

This album of baroque chamber music exemplifies the ability of untexted instrumental music to express concrete ideas. Epiphany is a season of light, culminating with the feast of Candlemas on February second. The pairing of unaccompanied works by J.S. Bach with H.I.F. Biber's meditations on the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary stems from the theory that Bach's first Sonata and first Partita express the Church's liturgical seasons of Nativity and Epiphany. They do so via hidden clues: chorale quotations and rhythmic devices such as the evocation of a "Shepherd's pastorale" in the Siciliana from Sonata 1. Four of Biber's five Joyful Rosary sonatas are contained in this album, all to do with the theme of Epiphany. Other works not specific to the feast but expressing enlightened mind and open-hearted joy are included in the album: Buxtehude's sonata for viola da gamba (BuxWV 268) and Biber's delightful Partita for in A major from Harmonia Artificioso-Ariosa. Kapsberger's brooding toccata for theorbo is similar atmospherically to the opening of the first Mystery Sonata, "Annunciation."

Many thanks to the talented musicians, engineers, and venue hosts for making this project a reality.
