Manuscript in the Herwarth Collection at the Bavarian Library, Munich. Master of
Music (Musicology) August 2007, 179 pp., 13 figures, 57 pieces, references, 25 titles.
The purpose of this paper is to create a modern transcription/edition and an
historical study of Munich Mus. Ms. 1511 b thereby helping to define the social and
pedagogical ramifications of lute repertoire from the mid-sixteenth-century. Because of
the amateurish nature of the compositions, the conclusion of this study is that a member
of the Herwarth family probably used the manuscript for learning purposes. Dance,
grounds and other related forms found in the manuscript are discussed. Also included is
an incipit concordance that can be used as a cross-reference for further research.
