Now that clear photos of the original publications have been made available by the Sorbonne online (at last!), I have finally managed to produce what I consider to be 

clear and accurate editions of these two important works.

See the originals here:

Suite in A major

Sonata ‘La Guerra’

von Westhoff

On our free downloads page, you will find the final Gigue movement of the 6th Suite for unaccompanied violin. The only surviving copy of these important works is missing its final page, and I have written a completion, following a study of the structures of all Westhoff’s other gigue movements.
