Early Guitars and Vihuela

A network for historic guitars and vihuelas

One I was searching for since a long time... Over 500 pieces for baroque guitar, so we have something to do in the winter.

In general not difficult to play.

Beautiful made, I guess with stamps.

You can download a PDF, but of less quality. Better to save all the 374 pictures...

Thank you very much Bibliotheque Nationale de France!

I recently asked the Bn de F for information about it and this is part of their reply. They also sent me a complete list of the contents. I don't think anyone has done a detailed study of it

It includes two unique pieces attributed to Corbetta .

Dear Monica Hall,

I feel honored and grateful you took the time to shed some light on my request. Considering the number of pieces by de Visée, we may assume that this MS dates back to the end of the 17th century, if not the beginning of the 18th century. Mouret and Senaillé both were born in 1685-1687, so it's very likely that their works were collected well after 1700... But by who, and for what purpose ? We may never know, but that would surely be a fascinating inquiry.

Regards,

gilles

The information was from the music librarian Francois Pierre Goy who catalogued the ms.in full after I contacted him. Some of the mss. are still only listed in a card  catalogue so it's an ongoing task. He sent me a complete list of the contents but that is too long to include here. The new catalogue entry should now be on line. De Visee's music continued to be played well into the 18th century - even Napoleon Coste arranged some of it I believe.
