Mouton, Charles MS II KK80 Prague

Possibly the MS from which a third and fourth Pieces de Luth were planned, containing pieces in c, g, a, G, and b. I have edited a diplomatic facsimile of the pieces in b, above. Apologies for poor quality of the scan.

Mouton, Charles PIECES DE LUTH

Scans of published lute books by Mouton, c. 1698-9. Pieces in a, C, f#, A. Some of the most sophisticated music and notation ever written for the lute. The foreword is a copy of a typescript German biographic and technical synopsis by Michael Schaffer.
