Facsimiles of early music manuscripts

Posted May 22nd, 2007 by Christie Moore

Thanks to a memorial donation from Dr. Richard Breed ’73, the Lewis Music Library has been able to order facsimile editions of several important medieval and renaissance music manuscripts. These editions are of great value for teaching early music and music notation in general, and they are also beautiful in themselves. Here are some recent arrivals.
