Music from the Duke of Lerma 66

Posted in CHS by eelfighter on May 29th, 2017

This is ms 66 from the book "Music for the Duke of Lerma: Cancoines of four, five, and six voices".  This book is from a manuscript which was the first collection of music for professional musicians, originally housed in a church in the village of Lerma in the North of Spain. Through a complicated series of circumstances, this music was revised for modern notation and republished in 2006 by Amherst Early Music.
