Description: This Austrian monk only published two opuses in his lifetime but this one, from 1695 (whose Latin title translates as "Musical Offering"), is a very interesting collection of sonatas for two violins, two violas and continuo with added pairs of trumpets in two of them, which sits nicely with the inventive and slightly eccentric works by his compatriots Biber and Schmelzer among others.
