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!
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.
