  • Any Information of Renaissance Organ Book


    I would like to ask about the Renaissance organ music collections. The only two I know are:

    Buxheim Organ Book 1460

    The Linzer organ tablature 1611

    Thank you!

    Check here: http://www.ohscatalog.org/sheetmusic.html, and I also have this book with a different color: http://www.jwpepper.com/1235233.item.

    For free sheet music (not collections, but downloadable for free): http://imslp.org/wiki/List_of_Compos...rpsichord_solo. The IMSLP website is free for everyone, but you will have to wait around 15 seconds to download a piece if you don't join. More of a nuisance than anything else--but worth the wait. Someday I'm going to join.

    Hope this gets you started.


    P.S. I just found this website, and the Renaissance music begins on the page the link provides and continues for a few pages: https://musopen.org/sheetmusic/instr...der_by=-period.
    Way too many organs to list, but I do have 5 Allens:
    • MOS-2 Model 505-B / ADC-4300-DK / ADC-5400 / ADC-6000 (Symphony) / ADC-8000DKC
    • Lowrey Heritage (DSO-1)
    • 9 Pump Organs, 1 Pipe Organ & 6 Pianos

      You can download a pdf with organ music from southern Germany here:
      There's a lot of text in German, explaining the history of the music which dates back to 1590.
      Maybe it's helpful to you?

      Then there is a collection of an Austrian organ tablature, but only in print and rather pricy: http://www.adartemmusicae.com/klagenfurt_en.html
      However, they have one sample as pdf for free: http://www.adartemmusicae.com/files/...cum-sample.pdf

      A collection by Erasmus Kindermann found on imslp: http://javanese.imslp.info/files/img...93-HarmOrg.pdf

        The Mulliner book is a very useful resource: http://www.stainer.co.uk/shop/mb1.html

        It's expensive but there is a volume containing a selection of pieces and there are the Tallis pieces from it on IMSLP

            I remember having replied to this thread again this year, but the response was probably lost during the forum down-time.

            Recently I bought a fairly new collection of organ music from the time of the reformation. It's called "Orgelmusik der Reformationszeit" and was edited and published by Jost Harro Schmidt.

            You can find a list of the contents here:

              Among more than a dozen volumes of historical organ technique and repertoire at the Wayne Leupold Edition site, there's a Late Middle Ages survey volume and a Renaissance survey volume both edited by Kimberly Marshall:I checked the volumes out of the library and they're very good. I also found a CD she recorded that contains a number of pieces from the Late Middle Ages survey: https://www.gothic-catalog.com/Gothi.../lrcd-1047.htm

              Before reviewing the volumes, I'd only heard of two or three of the early organ music sources such as the Buxheimer Orgelbuch and the Robertsbridge Codex. But Marshall quickly expanded (exploded?) my understanding about the organs and organ music of that era.

                Just stumbled upon a gem by Kimberly Marshall--she has produced 13 YouTube lectures from the organ bench that cover organ music of the Late Middle Ages and, I think, coordinated with significant portions of her volume of the same music that I posted to this topic on 11-05-2019 (wow...that's about a year ago but is seems soooo much longer ago than that).

                Here's the link to the first video in the series: https://youtu.be/DVv-EPmyV4o?list=PL...GVIhaQ4oi_rirl
