This critical first edition in four volumes makes two previously unknown manuscripts with music for keyboard instruments from the time around 1700 accessible to the music world. The South Tyrolean cleric and composer Elias de Silva (c. 1665–1732) is believed to be the copyist of the first manuscript, and a second, anonymous manuscript comes from the Cistercian monastery of Stams. The compositions selected for this edition provide a fascinating insight into typical musical practices of those days.
The first volume contains 40 compositions by the Lower Austrian composer Johann Jacob Walther (c. 1658–1706) which probably originated during his time as a cathedral organist in Brixen. Walther also taught Elias de Silva, among others.
