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 second volume contains 44 works by Italian and South German composers, some of whom also worked in the Tyrolean region and were esteemed nationwide.
