  • Biber's Rosary Sonatas employ scordatura (retuning of the violin), even crossing (yes, there's theological significance even here!) the 2nd and 3rd strings beyond the bridge (in the Resurrection movement):


    See the book of violinist Lina Tur Bonet's recording of the Mystery (Rosary) Sonatas for all the theological and musical thought Biber put into the Rosary Sonatas.
