Vivaldi: Concerti per Flauto-recorder Concertos
Despite complaints at its 'universal invasion', the violin was not the most frequently played instrument in the early 18th century: that distinction belongs to the recorder, simple, practical, and easy to handle, with marked pastoral connotations.

J. S. Bach: Kothener Trauermusik BWV 244a / Pygmalion / Raphael Pichon
When Leopold of Anhalt-Cöthen died in 1728, his former Kapellmeister had not forgotten the five brilliant years he had spent in the prince's service. He dedicated to his memory a mourning cantata almost entirely based on the music of two major works of the mid-1720s, the Trauer-Ode and the St Matthew Passion.
