Konvolut tisků a rukopisů NM-ČMH AZ 84 jako pramen k české hymnologii
THE COMPOSITE BOOK OF PRINTS AND MANUSCRIPTS NM-CMH AZ 84 AS A SOURCE FOR BOHEMIAN HYMNOLOGY
Languages of publication
Discantus and Altus part-books (sign. NM-ČMH AZ 84) were made by the later binding of component parts consisting of four prints and five manuscripts from the 1540s through about the 1590s. For the first time, the professional community can familiarize itself with their external description and contents. Those contents consist predominantly of compositions intended for Vespers (Magnificat settings and hymns). Special attention is paid to two Magnificat settings with Bohemian Christmas and Easter songs in the discant part. For each of the twelve songs, the oldest known incidences of their melody and text were identified, and transcriptions of the songs are also included. The discant part-book AZ 84 represents an indispensable source for the genesis of some of the songs (Všem věc divná, neslýchaná / To All Something Strange, Unheard-Of, Hory se zelenají / The Hills Turn Green, Plešíc již všecko stvoření / All Creation Now Rejoicing, Šalomúnovy postele / Sixty Men around Solomon’s Bed).
