Bibliotheca Musica Bononiensis, II/153. Bologna, 2/ 1983. 22 x 32 cm, xii. 130 pp. Line-cut of the Milan, 1620 edition. Francesco Rognoni came from a prominent musical family and was himself a virtuoso of several instruments. Selva de varii passaggi (possibly translated "Forest of sundry ornaments, for singing or instrumental performance") contains important expressive devices of the time: portar la voce, accento, tremolo, gruppo, esclamatione and intonatio—in short, ornaments absolutely essential for performing the music of Monteverdi and his generation. Introduction in It by Guglielmo Barblan. Wrappers. $63
