Austria already had a rich musical culture in the 17th century. The Latin titles 'Sonatae aris quam aulis servientes' and 'Mensa Sonora' refer to the Original use of this music: the pieces were used both during service in the church as well as background music while having dinner. Bibert combines virtuoso violin techniques with Bohemian folk traditions, and Muffat united the best of two musical worlds, Italy and France. 'Florilegium' refers to the 'seeds, which in fertile land will florish to be beautiful flowers'.
