Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck, Fantasia (SwWV 254)
As manuscript Ms. Lynar B3 is believed to be compiled in the circle of students of Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck, it is to be expected that some works of the master himself are contained in the manuscript as well. Sweelinck’s Fantasia C2 is one of them. It is one of the largest pieces in the manuscript. That large scale compositions like this Fantasia and much shorter praeludia are mixed in this manuscript is intruiging. Perhaps these larger works served as a model for the scribe for his own compositional studies?
