Three very nice pieces. ¿Which air and Gavotte of all those that the manuscript has are the ones you recorded?

Dear Patrig
I had planned to upload some of the chorals on this site, if you want I can scan some of them and send them to you. Calvinist psalms are unknown to me, it could be interesting to hear more about it.
You are welcome to visit me and my instruments when you are in Norway.
Greetings from a stormy Norway, Trond.

Dear Trond,
I enjoyed listening to your recordings of these pieces. I am very surprised hearing about the "chorals" inthat manuscript. I have been working very on the intabulations of calvinist psalms for the lute.
I'd be delighted to meet you when I am in Norway, your instruments seem to be very beautiful.
greetings from Rouen, Patrig

Thank you for the video and music upload of Hertzberg pieces. I had thought I was aware of most of the sources with a Scandinavian connection, but was surprised last year to learn of the manuscript through the recording "Northern Delights". You've added to my knowledge of the source. I would also be interested in additional uploads of pieces from Hertzberg. Takk igjen!

Takk skal du ha. I'll scan some more pieces soon.

Jätte fint Trond. I have some pages of the manuscript, but I would be very grateful if you could scan more pieces of it. Timo

I posted one of them now, "In dich hab ich gehoffet Herr", a pdf file. Hope some of you can record it. If anyone likes it, I can add more.

I recognise the ms now - I have a few pages from it. Good stuff. I can't think of many chorales in baroque guitar arrangements. Could you record some for us, Trond?

It belonged to a Lady from Copenhagen(1708-1801). She brought it to Norway when she married a vicar in Hardanger (near Bergen on the westcoast). The manuscript belonged to the Hertzbergfamily until recently. Now it's in Oslo UniversityLibrary. All the pieces are anonymous. Many are arrangements of Lullys music. 5 of the pieces seems to be duets: Sonata adagio, Allemande allegro, Adagio, Gig and Menuet.
It also contains 21 chorals for sologuitar, one I recognized as Judenkunigs Christ ist erstanden.
