The Transcriptions Series series

Recital Music publish a wealth of original works for double bass alongside a popular, accessible and growing range of transcriptions for bassists of all ages and abilities. Most transcriptions published by Recital Music are by David Heyes, who has a successful and proven track record when arranging for double bass.


Transcribed by David Heyes, this wonderfully accessible and evocative choral work transcribes well for 10 double basses (or cellos) and a range of contrapuntal and antiphonal effects maintain the interest for performers and audiences alike. Ideal for any youth orchestra bass section or conservatoire bass department, there are challenges here for ensemble study and also great opportunities to create a unique performance by adding your own dynamic contrasts.


Antonio Lotti was born in Venice of Hanover in c.1667 and died in Venice in 1740. He became organist at St. Mark's (Venice) in 1690, eventually becoming maestro di cappella in 1736, and was a prolific composer of operas and church music. Much of his vocal music has remained popular until the present day, particularly his settings of Crucifixus for 8 and 10 voices.

Lotti's music bridges the late Baroque and early Classical styles and Charles Burney, who heard his church music in 1770, characterises his music as both solemn and touching, and capable of expression through his effective and masterly use of counterpoint.
