Alternative. Title
Composer Montbuisson, Victor de
I-Catalogue NumberI-Cat. No. None [force assignment]
Movements/SectionsMov'ts/Sec's 2 parts, several items
  • A manuscript with 2 "parts" and several scribes (probably: ff.55r-60r,65v-72r,77v-81r: Montbuysson; 81v-89v,100r [,23v-51v]: Schimmelpfennig; 21v-23r,92v-100r: Elisabeth von Hessen-Kassel)
  • Watermarks recognized by Clytus Gottwald as being from 1609/10/11
  • Januier 1611, notice f.54r
  • The character of the manuscript is best to be seen by leaving the pages unchanged, despite a great amount of empty pages and a doublet (the original scan is a bit bumpy): f.89r; Courrente Gautier, f.89v; f.90r; f.89a (ripped out); f.90r; same Courrente Gautier, but partly masked, f.90v; f.90r, ...
  • At the beginning 1 folio is missing, might have had a title (surely will have been different to the one given at f.54r)
  • Montbuysson, 1598-1627 lutenist in Kassel, teacher of Elisabeth von Hessen-Kassel and of Schimmelpfennig, who later on seems to have been Montbuysson's assistant and also Elisabeth's teacher
