Passacaglia from the Mystery Sonatas for Solo Violin.

The Glorious Mysteries include the events from the Resurrection to the Assumption of the Virgin and Coronation of the Virgin. The Resurrection opens the last cycle of sonatas, with the most impressive open and sonorous tuning, underlining its otherworldly theme. The remaining four Glorious Mysteries are also composed using bright, major scordatura tunings.

The following Passacaglia in G minor uses a bass pattern which is the same as that of the first line of a hymn to the Guardian Angel. It is considered the most "outstanding work of its type before the Bach Chaconne."

Composer Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber (1644–1704) wrote some of the most imaginative music of the Baroque era in Germany. His music increased sharply in popularity between the late 1980s and the early 2000s. A highly talented violinist himself, he wrote difficult music that continues to challenge violinists today, and his music for other instruments was equally original.
