Further adventures in "finding all my favourite pieces* of early music in facsimile".
*That's a long list. Perhaps most of them. This could take a while.
Finding Mille Regretz
Mille Regretz is perhaps my favourite piece by Josquin des Pres (or perhaps not by Josquin - it's up for debate).
Finding it was pretty easy:
I'm trying to become more fluent in playing and singing from medieval and renaissance notation, so I'm finding facsimiles of lots familiar pieces to practice on. Unsurprisingly, there are a few surprises on the way ...
Ave Vera Virginitas, Josquin
I learned this from the Big Lochac Snogbook (sic) - a fabulous collection of gorgeous pieces. The SATB setting of Josquin's Ave Vera Virginitas is indeed lovely.

So ... this week my wonderful viol teacher, Polly Sussex, set me an interesting piece of homework: find "Angelica Bilta" - a piece by 14thC composer Landini we've been playing - in the Squarcialupi Codex.
There's a facsimile of the codex at IMSLP. Still, easier said than done.
