Show Summary Details


This chapter contains concordance patterns for all music books published by Ottaviano Petrucci, arranged in alphabetical sequence by language. Latin incipits are followed by Italian and French sequences, and then by the few titles in Dutch, German, and Spanish, and finally by a sequence of titles to instrumental or untexted pieces. Within the Latin series, complete masses are entered first, followed by mass ordinary movements and sections, and then an alphabetical series of other incipits. At times the actual alphabetical sequence looks arbitrary. While titles show Petrucci's spelling, they are arranged in a sequence that corresponds to modern spellings. With some 600 concordant sources, and more continuing to surface, it has proved impossible to check each source, and a number of the following entries are necessarily derived from the recent scholarly literature.

Keywords: concordance; Ottaviano Petrucci; incipits; sequences; spellings; sources; music; books
