70/2713 [Music]. Manuscript songbook, mainly sacred works, n.pl., n.d. (±1600), (42 manuscript), (13 blank), (19 ms.), (38 blank),(25 ms.), (39 blank), (24 ms.), (16 blank) leaves, pen and ink on manuscript staves, all but two recto and verso, contemp. vellum.

- Occas. w. later annots. in pencil (sometimes identifying the composer, sometimes on the number of voices required); lacks one leaf and one leaf dam. (with loss of music). Occas. cut sl short (affecting the numbering of the pieces in the manuscript, which from no.30 onwards stop altogether); occas. trifle soiled in margins. Contents otherwise fine. Binding warped and vellum soiled.

= A very interesting and important source for late 16th and early 17th cent. European continental music, containing over 90 pieces of mostly spiritual music by some of the most famous composers of the time as well as of lesser well known or even unknown composers. Only one piece in the manuscript is dated (no.34 of the list below, by Melchior Franck, dated "13. Jul: 1627"). The manuscript is written in several different hands, which implies that it was done by various copyists. Copying music by scribes was done well into the 18th century, and was deemed more efficient and cheaper than the printing of sheetmusic. Mother copies all over Europe were used for easy and relatively swift dissemination of (parts of) music by scribes.
