Description: Long extant as an anonymous manuscript in the Sacred Convent of St. Francis of Assisi, these sonatas, conservative, in late Corellian style and having some affinities with contemporary cello sonatas by Benedetto Marcello and Vivaldi, have recently been identified as likely by this prolific Franciscan composer whose career began and ended in Assisi. Renato Criscuolo (cello, violoncello piccolo), Musica Perduta.
