Some of you may remember earlier postings of mine, refering you to the ‘Lusthof der Muziek’ or ‘Garden of Musical Delights’ (http://lusthof-der-m...k.blogspot.com/) [lusthof-der-muziek.blogspot.com/], our website for the dissemination of rare musical sources from the Netherlands and Flanders from the 16th to the 20th century. Over de last couple of months, a lot of new material has been added. Both famous and obscure sources from our folk (and ‘burgher’) history are now available online, often in various digital formats (abc, pdf, mp3, xml) and all free of charge.

 

To give you a taster, some names and titles that will do ring a bell with people who are familiar with the tradition are Balmer, Hanekuijk, Kiers, Speets, de Gruijtters, De Hollantsche Schouburgh and De Nieuwe Hollandsche Schouwburg. Also included are some treasures which until recently had escaped everyones attention, such as three manuscripts bij the family Van Bolhuis, a charming manuscript for keyboard by a guy named Mentjot (a suitable source for arrangements on the concertina, I suspect), the manuscript ‘Musicq Boek 1740’, and several presumably lost volumes and fragments from famous music series that were published in Amsterdam.

 

I hope to reach any Dutch musicians on this forum, but maybe also people who trace their ancestry to the Low Lands, and of course anyone else who might be interested. Please have a look and take advantage of the efforts of our industrious volunteers who produced these transcriptions. The writing is in Dutch, but we installed the Google translator, which should at least give you an inkling of what each source is about (and the dots can do without, obviously).

 

Thanks,

Mark

New in the Garden of Musical Delights: a transcription in modern music notation of a sizeable Dutch Lute manuscript from around 1600, with a very international collection of songs and dances. Available in pdf, abc, musicXML, myr and computer generated mp3:
