21. Passagalia for unaccompanied violin
22. Scordatura briefly explained

The Rosary Sonatas is one of the most unusual collections of violin music ever assembled and it is this work on which Biber’s present-day fame rests. Calling for a different violin tuning (scordatura) in each of its 15 Sonatas – all played here on the same Amati instrument – the full set is a triumph of Baroque invention and 17th-century virtuoso style. The Gramophone Award winning partnership of Andrew Manze and Richard Egarr meets this challenge with dazzling results.
