This remarkable set of 16 sonatas is also known as The Rosary Sonatas and The Copper-Engraving Sonatas (for the engravings at the head of the sonatas).
Each sonata employs a different tuning of the violin. This use of scordatura transforms the violin from the pleasures of the Five Joyful Mysteries (the Annunciation, etc.) to the trauma of the Five Sorrowful Mysteries (the Crucifixion, etc.) to the ethereal nature of the Six Glorious Mysteries, starting with the Resurrection Sonata, where the two middle strings are symbolically crossed over to Sonata No 16, a passacaglia for solo violin with standard tuning, completing the cycle of scordaturas.
