This collection contains both trios and duets. It is a continuation of the series begun with the first volume of Duets and Trios. Both collections are an outgrowth of a Northwestern University study: to make a performance edition of selected dances from the Eleanor Hague Manuscript of Music from Colonial Mexico. The tune of each selected dance is given to the first oboe, but these duets may be played on any instruments with a range from middle C up two octaves to high C. Since these dances are 300 years old, they present certain performance practice problems. The editor has added some explanatory notes to suggest rhythmic alterations, such as eighth notes being played mildly unequal, etc. Musical taste must be brought to bear in performance, of course. 

This title comes as one performance score. There are no individual parts.
