Misc. Comments

According to Grove Music, this manuscript was "copied by an unknown hand not before 1676, containing 122 pieces for harpsichord, four for organ and five for ensemble". Until a complete contents list is compiled, it is unknown what instrumentations the 5 ensemble pieces are for, so this page includes an "undetermined instrumentation" tag until that can be sorted out.
