Moravske manuscript (Logy/Losy)

Found this gem of an Ms thanks to posts from several years ago on this forum. Since there are different threads, I'll start a new discussion to ask my questions.1) On page 48 there is a page of tuning for guitar and mandora. While note values aren't given for the guitar the sixth course for the mandora is a G and that seems to work for the guitar pieces. Is there evidence for a 6 course guitar that Losy composed for?

Daniel I am interested in the Santiago de Murcia pieces, especially La Jota. During the mid 1970's I studied with Pat O'Brien in Brooklyn. I saw the Youtube video of his performance of Murcia pieces and was reminded of his joy in playing, teaching, researching, and of course performing. I sorry to hear about his passing.

Thanks for the scores. 

I am searching for Murcia's Jota, but i seems that your score disappear. 

And did you found a numeric copy of the Santiago de Murcia's Códice Saldívar no. 4 ? The book is verrrrrry rare & expensive !

Thanks a lot again

Hi Daniel,

Are you going to add the Allegro to the Santiago de Murcia prelude? In fact the whole suite is an amazing piece.

Thank you for your scores. Especially for the great passacaglie.

Thanks, Daniel. I've now corrected the PDF.

Juan Pira's discussion on finding scores has created a nice improvement to our Ning group. There is now a new menu tab, a listing of scores, and links to the various member pages where the scores can be found. For the time being I will be maintaining the the score list. Let me know if you have any suggestions/corrections for improving the list.

A very nice performance of the Morner Chaconne, Daniel! I hope you will enjoy your new instrument, too.

Yes - I can do that! It is possible to convert them to Midi files - but they sound awful!

Sorry - yes. As far as I know the only way to post it is as a PDF. You can only open Django files if you have the Django programme.
