Merula for gardening

Baroque music from Tarquinio Merula, music for gardening.

Tarquinio Merula

Baroque music, variations around a base melodic line. None better to demonstrate the beauty of ostinato than Merula’s work, excellent to play while gardening. Play the music and notice the rhythms of life in the garden, themes and variation.
 Many of these works are available for listening on You Tube.

Ciaconna for two violins and basso continuo
La Lusignuola
Hor ch'รจ tempo di dormire

Baroque instruments

Standard Dwarf Bearded Iris in the rock garden, instrument of variation.
