This Canzona la Padovana is one of the loveliest pieces that I have ever had the privilege of playing. This was in The Vegesack Double Quartet (lead by Heidi Suhrlie) repertoire and we played it a number of times in public both in Vegesack and in Yorkshire when on tour in 1984.
It is a wonderful harmonious arrangement for a double consort and comprises two sections, opening with a 4/4 section of 54 bars being then followed by a 3/4 section, Poco più mosso. My happy task was to play the second treble in the second consort and I can just be discerned doing the nice, soft echo bits on the DAM-CD given below.
