Music fragments and manuscripts from the Low Countries

Alta Capella/Music Printing in Antwerp and Europe in the 16th century
E. Schreurs & H. Vanhulst (Editors)
Music manuscripts have not always been treated very kindly during the past, as is revealed today when manuscripts are often discovered in a very poor state. The Alamire Foundation brought this topic to the fore by organizing a congress on recently found music fragments and manuscripts (1995). Contributors discussed fragments such as the recently discovered Ars Antiqua fragment from Tongeren, an unknown nenia on the death of Josquin, two sources with lute music, a source with the oldest preserved keyboard music in Flanders, and new fragments from Tongeren, Brussels, Ghent, Helmond, Oudenaarde and Sint-Truiden.
