    Christopher Gibbons (1615-1676)

    I'm working on some scores downloaded from IMSLP, Christopher Gibbons "Ayres for 2 and 3 viols"

    I'm trying to figure out if they are all separate works or if they are movements from larger works, they are headed by a number then either Almaine, Ayre, Corant, Galliard or Saraband. The numbers run 1-19 plus some un-numbered but the Ayre, Almaine, Corant etc do not run in sequence which is what leads me to suspect individual works, not movements of larger works.

    Any ideas or pointers to possible information on line?

    Example, Ayre No 1 Almaine

    Not at all sure Mike.. I am tempted to say individual works or maybe series of "dance" forms. Enjoyable music I will say.
