Pieces in B minor from the Prague MS KK80
for 11 course lute
1. La Sincerre, gavotte
3. Les Jumaux, jaconne
4. L’Heureuse Rencontre
6. La Belle Melancolique
7. Courante Mouton and Double

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.
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.
