AbstractIn the course of this work, examples of early baroque ornamentation extracted from historical vocal treatises will be applied to Philipp Friedrich Böddecker's "Sonata sopra 'La Monica.'" This study will demonstrate that Böddecker's sonata for bassoon and basso continuo is derived from a popular vocal tune of the 17th century and therefore an informed early baroque instrumental performance practice for this work can be extracted from early Baroque Era vocal performance treatises. Additionally, testimonies from authentic performance practices of the early Baroque Era will be applied to this work in an effort to create a guide to a historically informed performance.
