I have just been reliably informed this piece is not by Marcello but it is the slow movement of a sonata by Marcello's contemporary, Giovanni Platti. I edited some solo pieces by Platti years ago but they are still copyright so I can't put them here. I will change the documentation and refile as Platti soon.
I was looking around for two line pieces to arrange for myself and my wife to play with violin when I saw this organ piece by Benedetto Marcello. Once I had separated the 3 lines and put it into E Major from Eb Major you would not think that it was not an original piece for violin and guitar.
I remember reading through a soprano vocal piece with two independent 'cello parts by Marcello, and could not believe how with every verse the music got better. The penultimate verse was a real alla breve show stopper followed by a slow apotheosis which was just so beautiful. I think it is out of print now other than in facsimile...... But anyway here is my little arrangement of this organ piece which is also charming in its own way.
