A basic guide to reference sources for all aspects of music research, giving annotated listings for over 3,200 items. Organized by type of source (e.g., dictionaries, histories) and indexed by author, title, and subject.
This work lists and describes all of the 400 books containing music for instruments that were published during the sixteenth century, when instrumental music was born. This bibliography covers music for virtually every sixteenth-century instrument, and every one of the usual combinations of instruments with voices: music for solo lute, guitar, vihuela, harpsicord or organ, music for voice and one accompanying instrument, and for instrumental ensembles, and treatises devoted to instrumental playing and such practices as ornamentation.
