Bach’s Bible: The Calov Bible, Die Heilige Bible 1681-92. Facsimile of the Original Preserved in Concordia Seminary Library, St. Louis.
Franeker, 2014. 19.5 x 33 cm, 3 vols, 4355 pp + commentary. Full-color deluxe facsimile. The 3-volume Bible commentary compiled by 17th-century theologian Abraham Calov and once in the library of Johann Sebastian Bach has been in the Seminary Library collection since it was given to the Seminary by the Reichle family of Frankenmuth, MI, in the 1930s. The volumes are the only known, i.e., identified, books from the library of Lutheran composer J. S. Bach. Calov is both editor and author of the commentary, using as he does both Martin Luther’s translation of the Bible and primarily Luther’s comments on the text, adding his own commentary when no material is available in Luther’s works. The work was printed in 1681-82. Some 25 marginal annotations of Bach, along with underlining and other marginal markings, are evidence of the composer’s use of the volumes. Careful analysis of the handwriting, as well as technical analysis of the ink done in the 1980s, established the authenticity of Bach’s ownership. Commentary in Eng/Ger/Jap/Dut by Albert Clement.

[Henle Music Facsimiles, 22]. Munich, 2011. Oblong, 35 x 29 cm, 168, xxiv pp. Beautiful 4-color halftone. The heart of Beethoven’s Quartet op. 132 is the “Holy song of thanksgiving”, in which Beethoven takes up old counterpoint techniques and Gregorian simplicity. In this unusually beautiful and well preserved manuscript, Beethoven generously makes the most of the space on its pages. The lavish 4-color printing allows the composer’s occasionally unconventional manner of notation to come to life. It permits a unique insight into the creative process, which continued after it had been written down in the form of multiple additions and changes. The edition is rounded off with a preface by the pianist András Schiff, with whose generous support this valuable facsimile was made possible. Hardbound. $190 (more info... ) [item no.9189]

The autograph contains a fascinating note written by Paul Bigot (husband of the pianist Marie Bigot) which sheds light on the provenance of the ms: "During the journey, he [Beethoven] was surprised by a storm and driving rain, which soaked through the case in which he carried the Sonata in F minor which he had just composed. Following his arrival in Vienna he visited us and, laughing, showed the still wet composition to my wife, who took a closer look at it. Moved by the surprising beginning she sat down at the piano and begin to play it. Beethoven had not expected this and was surprised to see how Mad. Bigot did not let herself be stopped for a moment by the many erasures and changes which he had made. It was the original which he was in the process of taking to the publisher so that it could be engraved. When Mad. Bigot had played it and asked him to give it to her, he agreed and faithfully brought it back for her once it had been engraved". The autograph passed from the Bigot family to the Conservatoire de Musique, and then to the BN in Paris. Introduction in Ger-Eng. Hardbound with handsome paper boards. $116 (more info... ) [item no.9265]

Oblong, 32 x 24 cm, xx, 58 pp. Full-color halftone of the composer’s autograph—simultaneously a fair and working copy—completed on Dec. 25, 1821. Although the last piano sonatas op.109, 110 and 111 were planned as a trilogy and offered to the publisher Schlesinger, their composition was not continuous, and it is op.110 that has certain unmistakable links with the Missa Solemnis composed at the same time (sketches of op.110 can be found alongside those of the Credo, the Agnus dei & Dona nobis pacem of the Mass).

Compared to the previous sonatas of the trilogy (op.109, 110 & 111), op.111 had a rather long correction and printing period. After the Schlesinger (son & father) editions appeared in Paris and Berlin respectively Beethoven angrily had the Viennese publisher Diabelli issue a corrected reprint. Introduction in Ger-Eng.

[Composition studies with Haydn, Albrechtsberger, Salieri] Kompositionsstudien bei Joseph Haydn, Johann Georg Albrechtsberger und Anton Salieri. Herausgegeben von Julia Ronge. 1. Transkriptionen; 2. Kritischer Bericht; 3. Reproduktionen der Handschriften.
Beethoven Werke, XIII/1. Munich, 2014. Oblong, 31 x 27 cm, 3 vols, xv, 307; 93; 201 pp. The long awaited first volume of Beethoven’s composition studies in facsimiles. When Beethoven moved to Vienna in 1792, almost immediately, and likely pre-arranged, he started composition studies with Haydn, who had been freed from his post with the Esterhazys and was now living in Vienna. The studies—exercises in free counterpoint but also concerned with the conception of a piece, movement structure, proportions of the various parts and the art of “sketching”—lasted until 1794 when his teacher recommended additional studies with Albrechtsberger. Here Beethoven acquired a wide range of technical and compositional tools which built on the earlier study. In 1801 Beethoven then turned to Salieri to learn the technique of setting primarily Italian texts to music, an area not covered in the preceding studies. The present volume reproduces for the first time the surviving manuscripts that record those studies. These are remarkable witnesses showing Beethoven under the watchful eyes of his teachers with illuminating comments, corrections or alternative passages. Facsimile, transcription and commentary, 3 volumes, linen bound. $833 (more info... ) [item no.9393]
[sketchbook, “Landsberg 6”] Beethoven’s “Eroica” Sketchbook. A Critical Edition. Transcribed, Edited, and with a Commentary by Lewis Lockwood and Alan Gosman. Volume 1: Facsimile; Volume 2: Transcription, Commentary, Inventory.
Beethoven Sketchbook Series, . Champaign, 2013. 4˚, 2 vols. Complete halftone reproduction and critical edition of the MS, currently in Kraków at the Biblioteka Jagiellońska (formerly Berlin, Staatsbibliothek, Mus. ms. aut. Beethoven Landsberg 6). Once known as “Notierungsbuch E”, Landsberg 6 is perhaps Beethoven’s most famous sketchbook due in part to Nottebohm’s 1880 monograph on this source. This sketchbook documents Beethoven's creative work from sometime late in 1802 until early in 1804, a transformative period in his artistic career. The most significant sketches are those for the “Eroica” Symphony, op.55, the “Waldstein” Sonata, op.53, and for the first five numbers of the opera Leonore as produced in 1805 (later revised and renamed Fidelio).

My Ladye Nevells Book (British Library MS Mus. 1591). Edited by Oliver Neighbour.
Documenta Musicologica, II/44. Kassel, 2012 Oblong, 8°, 394, 7 pp Duo-tone facsimile of one of the most beautifully written music manuscripts to survive from the late 16th c. and is still preserved in its original ornate binding. It was painstakingly compiled by the Windsor-based scribe John Baldwin, who completed work on it on 11 September 1591. Baldwin seems to have worked under the direction of the composer of all the pieces in the book, William Byrd, and clearly thought highly of him, describing him elsewhere as one “whose greate skill and knowledge: dothe excelle all at this tyme: and farre to strange countries: abroade his skill dothe shyne”. By 1591 Byrd was mid-way through his career as composer of church music and secular vocal and instrumental music. The MS provides a snapshot of the keyboard music he had composed by that date and is an exceptionally important source for his music. It contains some of his best-known compositions for keyboard, including variations on the popular tunes 'Sellinger's Round' and 'All in a Garden Green'. It also includes music written by Byrd specially for the dedicatee of the MS, 'Ladye Nevell'. She has recently been identified as Elizabeth, wife of Sir Henry Nevill of Billingbere, Berkshire. Her family's coat of arms adorns a leaf at the front of the MS. The MS was accepted by HM Government in Lieu of Inheritance Tax and allocated to the British Library in April 2006, with additional funding from donors. (adapted from BL description).

Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta, 5. Milan, 2012. Oblong, 30 x 23 cm, xc, 306 pp. Presented for the first time during the 1666 carnival at the Venetian theater of St. John & St. Paul, “Il Tito” of Nicolò Beregan and Antonio Cesti is an opera frequently cited in the musicological literature of the last 40 years. Surviving archival materials document the genesis of the score with an unusual precision and have clarified many details necessary for reconstructing the Venetian theater production system of the second “Seicento”. In spite of the importance of the work—a collaboration between a not-so-prolific yet widely appreciated librettist and one of the most popular composers of that epoch, there has never been a complete study of the musical and literary sources. The commentary to this new Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta volume finally fills this lacuna, reproducing the oldest and most complete manuscript score of Tito (preserved in the Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana) together with a critical edition of the libretto and a comparative study of the three other musical sources that have survived.

This colorful, highly virtuosic piano work is often associated with the island of Jersey, where Debussy secretly spent the summer of 1904 with his new love Emma Bardac.

HAYDN, Franz Joseph, 1732-1809 [The Creation, Hob. XXI:2, sketches] Die Schöpfung Hob.XXI:2. Skizzen. Herausgegeben von Annette Oppermann.
Joseph Haydn Werke, XXVIII/3/III. Munich, 2012 4°, 104 pp. Beautiful full-color reproduction of 36 sketch pages, hitherto unpublished, to Haydn’s oratorio “The Creation”, preserved in libraries in Vienna, London and New York. The sketches are very revealing: the famous soprano aria “On mighty pens” originally had an entirely different melody. The 5 notated beginnings of the recitative “Our duty we performed now” make it clear that Haydn even pondered very carefully such apparently standardized musical phrases before opting for a variant. The 3 surviving full-score sketches for the overture “The Representation of Chaos” show in turn how Haydn slowly developed the whole movement out of a basic idea initially outlined on only one page and garnished it with ever finer rhythmic and harmonic details. The whole set gives us a wonderful glimpse into workshop of the composer. With diplomatic transcription and notes in German. Handsome clamshell case in linen. $325 (more info... ) [item no.9267]

LISZT, Franz, 1811-1886 Rigoletto Konzertparaphrase. Kommentar: Ulrich Scheideler.
[Henle Music Facsimiles, 23]. Munich, 2011. 36 x 24 cm, 22 pp. Deluxe full-color facsimile of the autograph “working copy”, issued on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of Liszt’s birth. Franz Liszt not only wrote a series of opera paraphrases during his virtuoso years, but also composed some in his Weimar years from 1848 onwards. He did not, however, write them for himself but for the pianist friend (who was also his son-in-law) Hans von Bülow. Among these works, the paraphrase on Giuseppe Verdi’s “Rigoletto”, which was published in 1860, occupies a special place on account of its incredible virtuosity and at the same time its filigree texture. Since this is a working manuscript, the facsimile also offers fascinating insights into Liszt’s manner of working. Commentary in Ger-Eng. Handsome black moiré coverboards with Liszt’s signature in red. $82 (more info... ) [item no.9230]
[Sonata, piano, B minor, S.178] Klaviersonate h-moll / Piano Sonata in B Minor. Faksimile nach dem im Eigentum von Mr. Robert Owen Lehman befindlichen Autograph. Vorwort: Mária Eckhardt; Geleitwort: Claudio Arrau.
[Henle Music Facsimiles, 26]. Munich, [2014-in prep] 27 x 35 cm. Deluxe full-color facsimile. The surviving autograph of Franz Liszt’s b-minor Sonata is a fascinating document that illuminates the compositional process: many cuts and paste-overs show how Liszt refined the architecture of the work. The previously available facsimile of the autograph (OMI #372) also allowed a profound look into this work process—but it was not possible to see what Liszt had originally notated in the passages that were pasted over.

MAHLER, Gustav, 1860-1911 [Rückert Lieder, selections, voice & orch, voice/piano] Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen. Facsimile Edition of the Autograph Manuscripts, Gilbert Kaplan, Editor.
New York, 2014. 29 x 37 cm, c.100 pp, CD audio recording. Full-color reproduction of one of Mahler’s most popular and poignant songs, composed in 1901 with a text by Friedrich Rückert. It is the third of the original five-song cycle “Rückert-Lieder”; Mahler himself conducted the first performance in 1905 and described “Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen” / “I am lost to the world” as creating “a feeling that rises just up to the lips, but does not pass beyond them... It is my very self”. This carefully executed facsimile includes both the autograph orchestral and voice & piano versions and extensive historical notes by Gilbert Kaplan and Stephen Hefling. The story of the manuscript and its survival has an amazing story. Limited bibliophile edition of 400 copies, of which only 200 is for the trade. $100 [item no.9334]

MATTHESON, Johann, 1681-1764 Nerone - Nero. Partitura in facsimile. Edizione dei libretti. A cura di Francesco Giuntini. Saggi introduttivi di Francesco Giuntini & di Reinhard Strohm.
Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta, 14. Milan, 2013. Oblong, 30 x 23 cm, cxxi, 129 pp. Nerone, a “tragedia per musica” by Agostino Piovene, received its first staging in Venice in 1721 with music by Giuseppe Maria Orlandini, but won great success two years later in Hamburg in the version by Johann Mattheson, who retained the original arias, translated the recitatives into German and provided new musical settings for them, and added a few pieces of his own composition. In addition to a score corresponding to the Hamburg version (D-B, Mus. ms. 16370), the volume contains editions of the Italian libretto of 1721 and the German one of 1723. The opera is one of the most advanced manifestations of the reformist tendencies of the early eighteenth century: this is a genuine tragedy, inspired by the Britannicus of Racine, that concludes with a simple recitative given to Agrippina accusing her assassins before her killing.

MONTEVERDI, Claudio, 1567-1643 L’Incoronazione di Poppea. Facsimile della partitura di Napoli. Edizione del libretto a cura di Lorenzo Bianconi. Saggi introduttivi di Gino Benzoni e Alessandra Chiarelli.
Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta, 2. Milan, 2011. Oblong, 30 x 23 cm, xcvi, 233 pp. Within the history of opera L’incoronazione di Poppea (Venice, 1643), with a libretto by Giovan Francesco Busenello and music attributed to Claudio Monteverdi, holds a special place, being the very first opera on a historical subject: instead of Daphne, Orpheus or Adonis, we meet the emperor Nero, the empress Octavia, the courtesan Sabina Poppea and the philosopher Seneca. A mocking cynicism pervades the opera, which is drawn from the Annals of Tacitus and from a Latin tragedy attributed to Seneca (Octavia): one recognizes in it the imprint of the philosophical and moral libertinism cultivated by the Accademia degli Incogniti. This volume reproduces the manuscript score preserved in Naples. Like the manuscript in the Biblioteca Marciana (already reproduced in facsimile in 1938), this one is the product of several hands: Francesco Cavalli, perhaps Benedetto Ferrari and probably an unknown Neapolitan composer. In his introductory essay, the historian Gino Benzoni delineates the reception during the 17th c. of Tacitus, the main basis of the opera. Alessandra Chiarelli clarifies the complex web of sources for the music and libretto. Lorenzo Bianconi contributes editions of the “scenario” (1643), the text as its author chose to publish it (1656) and the variants of the Neapolitan libretto (1651).

MOZART, Wolfgang Amadeus, 1756-1791 [Concerto, piano, orch, K.491] Piano Concerto in C minor K. 491. Facsimile of the Autograph Score in the Royal College of Music, London. With a commentary by Robert Levin.
Documenta Musicologica, II/48. Kassel, 2014. Oblong, 34 x 25 cm, 74, 40 pp. Beautiful color halftone of the autograph fair copy completed on March 24, 1786. In his fascinating preface Colin Lawson, Director of the Royal College of Music, describes the journey made by Mozart’s autograph following its sale in 1800 by Constanze, Mozart’s widow, to its eventual resting place in London where it is the jewel in the RCM’s extensive collection of historic manuscripts. The Piano Concerto in C minor K. 491 is one of Mozart’s greatest piano concertos not least because of the dramatic character of its minor key (it is one of only two piano concertos composed in minor keys). It also has the largest orchestra he ever used in a piano concerto and the only piano concerto to use both oboes and clarinets. Written in 1786 during a period of almost feverish activity, it was completed only 22 days after the A major concerto K. 488 and during composition of The Marriage of Figaro. The autograph is exceptional in that Mozart records sketches that he later enlarged and extensively revised for the score thus allowing us an insight into his creative process. Mozart’s work appears here for the first time in a color facsimile, making it possible to easily recognize the contrasting colors of ink. The renowned Mozart scholar and pianist Robert Levin has written an illuminating commentary. He explains Mozart’s method of composition and guides the reader page by page through the autograph. This high-quality facsimile truly is a fascinating insight into Mozart’s art of composition. Hardbound with linen spine and decorative paper boards. $274 (more info... ) [item no.9359]

PANDOLFI-MEALLI, Giovanni Antonio, 17th c. [Sonatas, violin, bc, op.3-4] Sonate op.III & IV for Violin & BC - Innsbruck 1660. Facsimile, Edited by Enrico Gatti and Fabrizio Longo.
Magdeburger Faksimile Offizin. Magdeburg, 2011. 4º, 30 94 pp. 4-color reproduction of the Innsbruck, 1660 edition. Although the details of Giovanni Antonio Pandolfo Mealli’s life are still largely unknown, his music is no stranger to the concert hall. Unfortunately these beautifully reproduced facsimiles of Sonata Opera Terza and Opera Quarta represent all that the world knows of this great composer and virtuoso violinist. Printed in the movable type of the time—but easy to read by modern performers today—these pieces illustrate the flourishing art of violin playing in central Italy in the heart of the 17th century. Pandolfi often writes out his ornamentation in full—a personal indication of his virtuosity—and so adds an extra dimension of interest for the modern performer. The sonatas have an almost "portrait" quality with endearing titles such as La Stella, La Cesta. La Melana, La Castella, La Monella Romanesca, La Biancuccia, La Vinciolina, etc. These are “nicknames” actual historical figures—many of them virtuosi musicians—to whom Pandolfi Mealli pays special hommage.

PERGOLESI, Giovanni Battista, 1710-1736 Stabat mater für Sopran, Alt, Streicher & Bassso Continuo. Faksimile des Autographs herausgegeben von Tineke Steenbrink.
Magdeburg, 2013. Oblong, 4°, 88 pp. 4-color facsimile of the autograph score preserved in the Benedictine Abbey of Monte Cassino. Although Pergolesi’s œurve is often subject to misattribution, the Stabat mater in C minor is a genuine work (possibly the composer’s last), commissioned by the Confraternità dei Cavalieri di San Luigi di Palazzo (Naples). The Order presented an annual Good Friday meditation in honor of the Virgin Mary and Pergolesi’s setting replaced the one by Alessandro Scarlatti composed only 9 years earlier. This moving setting—in striking “durezze e ligature” style—conveys the story of the suffering of the Virgin Mary at the foot of the cross; it went through numerous reprinting in the 18th c. and inspired many composers including J.S. Bach. Although the work is performed today with soprano and alto solists, string orchestra and basso continuo, the original called for castrati singers (similiar to Mozart’s motet “Exultate Jubilate”). The score has many ambiguous passages, so this facsimile edition, the first of its kind, will be an important asset to scholars and musicians alike. Wrappers. $74 (more info... ) [item no.9318]

ROSSINI, Gioachino, 1792-1868 Petite messe solennelle. Facsimile del manoscritto / Facsimile of the Manuscript.
Milan, 2011. Oblong, 37.5 x 29.5 cm. viii, 252 pp. Full-color reprduction of the original 1863 autograph including the separate parts for harmonium and second piano. Rossini composed two versions of this work, the first (reproduced here in facsimile) for “Twelve singers of three sexes, men, women and castrati... that is, eight for the choir, four soloists, in all twelve cherubim”. The Petite Messe solennelle was dedicated to the Contessa Louise Pillet-Will (the count and countess were close friends of Rossini), and the first performance inaugurated the splendid new residence that the count had commissioned in Paris. The use of two pianos and harmonium may at first seem odd but given its context as a salon piece is appropriate. Rossini composed hardly at all in the period 1829 to 1855 but after returning to Paris in 1855 wrote quite a few works for private audiences. He wittingly referred to them as Péchés de vieillesse (‘sins of old age’), and wrote in the score of the Petite messe solennelle “Good God – behold completed this poor little Mass – is it indeed music for the blest [‘musique Sacrée’] that I have just written, or just some blessed music [‘Sacrée musique’]? Thou knowest well, I was born for comic opera. A little science, a little heart, that is all. So bless Thee and grant me Paradise! G Rossini – Passy 1863”.

Hildesheim, 2/ 2011. 8º, xiv, 120, 474 pp. Line-cut of the manuscript. Santucci’s Mastro da Ballo, the latest of the 17th-century dance manuals to have come to light thus far, consists of 474 pages divided into three treatises and includes 214 Rules for Steps and Deportment, gagliarda variations, and 10 choreographies. Santucci’s step rules not only present many important variants on “old” steps but also describe others for the first time that point to a new style, suggesting a bridge between the Italian style of Caroso and Negri and the emerging French noble style. Santucci furthermore provides an extremely clear didactic way of teaching gagliarda “cinque passi” variations, of great help and utility even today. His progression from simple to complex leads to variations that will be a challenge to the most expert dancer. Linen. $142 [item no.9208]

[Arnold Schönberg Center] Schönberg. Pierrot Lunaire Companion. Elke Fess, Therese Muxeneder.
Vienna, 2012. 15 x 22 cm, 80 pp, w/ 42 color illus. Beautifully illustrated catalog produced on the occasion of composition of Arnold Schoenberg’s Pierrot lunaire in Berlin in 1912. The work was commissioned by Albertine Zehme, whose recitations were marked by a highly individual aesthetic, aiming to “recapture the ear’s prerogative in life”. In terms of its genre, Pierrot lunaire was historically unique at the time Schoenberg composed it and marks the high point of his expressionistic period. The famous melodrama is placed in the extreme danger zone of post-Romantic composition. Pierrot, “with waxen countenance”, is a bizarre and nervous figure, enticed into a counterworld of nighttime phantasms and hopeless passions. A cosmos of tonal shading in the colorful realm between singing and speaking. Ger/Eng. Wrappers. $15 (more info... ) [item no.9312]

[Tristan & Isolde, WWV 90] Tristan & Isolde (WWV 90). Facsimile of the Autograph Score from the National Archive of the Richard-Wagner-Stiftung Bayreuth. With a Commentary by Ulrich Konrad.
Documenta Musicologica, II/45. Kassel, 2012 29.5 x 41 cm, 354, 17, 20 pp. Full-color facsimile of the autograph score issued on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of Wagner's birth. In addition to the complete score, the edition includes the autograph concert ending of the Vorspiel as well as three pages that Wagner rejected while composing and later used for sketches. While working on the score to Tristan und Isolde, Richard Wagner expressed his excitement and elation about his new musical drama. Indeed, the radical originality of the work proved to be both unique and forward-looking: Over 150 years ago it signified the dawn of the modern era and to this day it has not lost any of its fascination. Throughout his life, Richard Wagner was proud of his even clear handwriting, always striving to produce manuscripts of a high calligraphic standard. The Tristan manuscript is an example of this but it also bears traces of his working process. It is precisely this aspect of the autograph that makes it fascinating. Reading it, one is witness to Wagner’s highly-concentrated, powerful and relentless writing. It evokes the aura of a singular individual. Commentary in Eng-Ger.

Italian musical culture. The Codex is composed of two distinct and independent copying layers. The older one contains 50 non-texted intabulated diminutions generally assumed to be instrumental and dated within the first two decades of the 15th century. They comprise diminished versions of Italian and French songs by some of the major composers of the 14th and early 15th c., Jacopo da Bologna, Bartolino da Padova, Francesco Landini, Antonio Zacara da Teramo, Guillaume de Machaut, and Pierre des Molins, as well as polyphonic estampies and diminutions on dance-related and liturgical tenors, including the 3 earliest alternatim mass-pairs that have come down to us. The younger layer is an autograph by the Carmelite friar Johannes Bonadies, who in 1473 and 1474 used empty folios to add 16 music theory treatises, summaries or tables, and 22 mid- or late-fifteenth-century polyphonic settings, mostly composed by John Hothby, Bernardus Ycart, and Johannes de Erfordia, aside with some anonymous settings and a short Kyrie by Bonadies himself.

[Osnabrück, Diözesanarchiv, Inv. Nr. Ma 101] Codex Gisle — Gradual of Gisela von Kerssenbrock.
Lucerne, [in prep - 2014]. 35.5 x 26 cm, 344 pp. Of the approximately 500 mss copied by nuns that survive from medieval Germany, none stands out quite like “Codex Gisle”, a Gradual in courtly gothic style with about 1500 Gregorian chants adorned with 53 historiated initials. It gets its name from the Cistercian nun Gisela von Kerssenbrock who, according to the memorial inscription on fol. 1 (in an early 14th c. hand), copied and illuminated it sometime before 1300 for her convent of Marienbrunn in Rulle near Osnabrück. Already known to art connoisseurs through a fine but partial collotype facsimile published in 1926 with the participation of the art historian Martin Wackernagel, the manuscript will now be given its due worth in a complete and exacting fine arts facsimile by Quaternio Verlag of Lucerne.

[Oxford, Bodleian Library, canon. lit. 342] Missale beneventanum notatum ecclesiae cathedralis ragusii. Oxford, Bodleian Library—MS. Canon. Liturg. 342.
Dubrovnik, 2011. 22 x 30 cm, 173, 256 pp. Beautiful full-color facsimile of a 12th c. notated missal from the Cathedral of Saint Mary in Dubrovnik. Though the MS has been in the possession of the Bodleian Library since 1817—part of the sizable collection acquired from the estate of the Jesuit Matteo Luigi Canonici—scholars realized early on of its connection with the city of Dubrovnik based on the inclusion of prayers in honor of three local otherwise unknown martyrs from Kotor: Peter, Andrew and Lawrence. Another connection with Dubrovnik is the cult of St. Blaise. The missale survives with 122 parchment leaves although it is estimated that about a quarter of its original content has been lost. The texts of the MS were copied in rounded Dalmatian Benevantan script, while the music notation to be sung by the ‘scholae cantorum’ is written in cursive Beneventan notation of the Dalmatian style (the Italian version has more detailed liquescent neumes). As the missal is the only book of rites which assembles in one place everything necessary to conduct the Mass this source is of great interest for the history of Dubrovnik Cathedral at a time when each Catholic diocese organized its own liturgy by importing, according to local conditions, adapted texts and rubrics of the Roman rite and adding particular features of its own liturgical traditions. Edited by Miho Demovic; with parallel texts in English. Facsimile volume hardbound, commentary in wrappers; slipcase with reproduction of a page of the original. $185 (more info... ) [item no.9369]
[Salamanca, Archivo de la Catedral, ms 2631] Codex Calixtinus de Salamanca.
Burgos, 2012. 27 x 37 cm, 246 pp + commentary. Students and scholars of the camino are now fortunate to have a second facsimile of Codex Calixtinus, based on the Salamanca copy. Known as Ms. S, and copied around 1325 in Santiago de Compostela, this counts as one of four complete (long) versions of the Jacobus compilation and at the same time one of four that are illustrated. According to M. Alison Stones the meagerness of Jacobus transmissions is a bit baffling—compared to about 200 sources for the Historia Turpini (Book IV), so the facsimile of the Salamanca source is all the more welcome. Telltale aspects of Ms. S show it has a slightly different lineage from Ms. C, and in that way the text and illustrations offer the historian new insights and challenges. Salamanca comes down to us without title page and the initial portrait of Pope Calixtus has been vandalized, however, other than this the manscript is beautifully executed and adorned with 5 stunning illuminations, 1 of them a whole page. Although Salamanca provides full texts for the chants for the office and mass of St. James, the compiler didn't get around to enter the pitches for the chant around the a single reference line (usually C or F).

Croft, William. Canticles and Anthems with Orchestra. Edited by Donald Burrows.
Musica Britannica, XCI London, 2011. 4º, li, 207, 26 pp. Modern critical edition. William Croft's career as the leading native-born composer of English church music was established in the period between the death of Purcell and the arrival of Handel in London. His education took place among musicians from Purcell's circle, and his style was modified by the influence of Handel's 'Utrecht' Te Deum and Jubilate of 1713. All the music in this volume was composed for various royal church services that took place between 1709 and 1720, in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace and in St Paul's Cathedral. The contents include the Te Deum and Jubilate Deo, sung at the coronation of George I, and the anthems The Lord is a sun and a shield, O give thanks unto the Lord, and call upon his name, O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is gracious, and Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous.

English Keyboard Music c.1600-1625. Edited by Alan Brown
Musica Britannica, XCVI. London, 2014. 4º. Modern critical edition. This volume is the first of two intended to extend the coverage of keyboard music in Musica Britannica comprehensively into the first quarter of the 17th century. The present edition contains music by anonymous and a dozen or so named composers, including the complete keyboard works of Nicholas Carleton, the surviving twenty 'Miserere' canons by Thomas Woodson, and the anonymous 'Pretty ways for young beginners to look on'. The 77 complete pieces are organized by genre, including preludes, plainsong settings, voluntaries, dances and character pieces. Drawing on 22 manuscripts which mostly also transmit music by Byrd and other noted virginalists, this residue of music from these sources shows great diversity and a pleasing level of technical skill and musical interest, sufficient to enhance our wider view of English Renaissance music.

Songs in British Sources c.1150-1300. Transcribed and Edited by Helen Deeming.
Musica Britannica, XCV. London, 2013. 4º, lx, 226 pp. Modern critical edition. Partly as a result of the nature of their manuscript transmission, songs from the period 1150 to 1300 have remained unknown or unnoticed with the exception of Sumer is icumen in and Angelus ad virginem. The rich variety of content in MB95 is therefore an important corrective and addition to our knowledge of the period, and is evidence for a vigorous interest in the cultivation and preservation of song in the 12th and 13th centuries. Not all the songs edited here originated in Britain, but their presence in MSS of British origin suggests that all were at least sung here. Most items are found uniquely in single music sources, or with text-only concordances, and around half are published for the first time. Buckram. $175 [item no.6757]
Weill, Kurt (collected edition) Johnny Johnson. Edited by Tim Carter.
The Kurt Weill Edition, I/13. New York, 2012. 30 x 39 cm. 348; 116 pp. Originally produced by the legendary Group Theatre in 1936, Johnny Johnson marked Weill's first contribution to the American musical theater. With book and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paul Green, the anti-war musical opened in November 1936 on Broadway, where it enchanted audiences and critics alike. Lee Strasberg directed, and the cast included a young Elia Kazan. The edition presents Johnny Johnson in full score, with the complete spoken text placed between the musical numbers. The editor drew on a vast array of surviving source materials, including not only Weill's manuscripts but also rehearsal scores and sets of instrumental parts, often containing several layers of chaotic performance annotations. Carter's introductory essay illuminates the work's genesis and performance history, the editorial process, and performance issues. 11 plates with facsimiles illustrate editorial challenges and solutions. A separate critical report documents every step of the editorial process and provides additional information for future stagings. Linen. $440 (more info... ) [item no.6935]
