"As mentioned earlier, I found Perez's flamboyant setting (in B-Bc 5.615) of the popular Marizapalos particularly intriguing (more florid in places than other surviving settings such as those by Guerau, Sanz, de Murcia and preserved in the…"

"Jalovec's  indispensable  'Encyclopedia of violin- makers'  gives Benoit Fleury's dates as 1751 - 1791 ( no other suitable Fleury candidates are listed) but it also shows a specimen of his label  (seemingly…"

"I'll be interested to see what you come up with and compare it with my version. To whet your appetite I have attached the piece from the Catalan ms."

"Thanks Monica. In that case I might draft a 'decoded' realisation of the Passacaille since I'm intrigued by the unusual setting. Martyn"

"The pieces were originally included in an earlier manuscript copied by Castillion - B-Lc Ms. 245 in about 1706. This ms. includes one additional pieces by Perez - with the title "Air". In the introduction to the later ms. Castillion says…"

Perez works found in Recueil des pieces de guitare 1729

Has anybody decoded the intriguing works by Perez in this MS collection copied by Castillion (Bibliotheque du Conservatoire Royale Musique  Brussels Cote 5.615)? The fullest version of the various attributions of various works in the collection to Perez  is against a piece (page 102) 'Passacaille dite Marizapalos' and gives 'par D. Michel Perez /de Zavala Espagnol/1690)'.  A good note on the MS by Monica Hall is here…See More

Martyn Hodgson replied to Feiga Siedler's discussion Info about Vihuela Chambure
"Dear Carlos, Thank you for this.  Yes - I agree with much of what you write and, in particular, about the peculiar and, to my mind, unattractive (truncated/squashed) body shape profile of E.0748 (the Chambure instrument) - but, as you also…"

Martyn Hodgson replied to Feiga Siedler's discussion Info about Vihuela Chambure
"Dear Carlos, Thank you for this and your view that the instrument in question may have been built as late as 1600. However the use of much aged wood by the maker working even after this date cannot be ruled out - indeed, your own view suggests…"

Martyn Hodgson replied to Feiga Siedler's discussion Info about Vihuela Chambure
"Thanks for Carlos - it certainly reinforces the view some of us first put forward many years ago (including the late Donald Gill, as well as myself) that we need to question the assumption that the instrument (E.0748) was constructed in the…"

"Many thanks for this Monica. It's interesting you mention that in an article Gonzales says that there's some doubt about the authenticity of the instrument.  Others  also raised similar concerns - sometimes also around the…"

"Further to this, the dendrochronology and other information you mention in your reply of 23 Oct does not tell us when the instrument was made - merely that it might not have been made before 1376 or before the parchment strip was originally…"

Martyn Hodgson replied to Feiga Siedler's discussion Info about Vihuela Chambure
"A general query: has this instrument ever been scientifically dated?  By this I mean by objective evidence such as expert dendrochronolgy or similar scientific dating procedures?  I understand that there's very limited provenance…"

Martyn - I sent you a couple of e-mails which you haven't replied to.  One was sent back by your SP - unable to deliver.   Do you know what the problem is?
