Product description

The term Divisions on a Ground describes a certain type of improvisation or composition that was very popular in England in the mid-17th century. A theme that fits a bass line of a few bars is often repeated and varied in such a way that longer notes are divided into shorter ones and larger intervals into smaller ones. This creates a series of variations or divisions. When playing these divisions, the bass can be played along or just thought along. - Eight such sets of divisions by John Jenkins have survived, all of which are included in this booklet together with a prelude. Some of them are quite extensive and sometimes make considerable demands on the players. The themes, which were popular in their day, still have their musical appeal today.
