Abstract

In Slovenian libraries and archives 25 titles of printed works on music dating from around 1650 to 1800 as well as five manuscript manuals and numerous manuscript fragments of music theory or exercises were found during a still current project. The prints were classified in three broad groups: speculative theoretical literature and general encyclopaedic works on various aspects of music; textbooks of various kinds on music, manuals on counterpoint and guides to compositional technique and performance; and finally practical manuals, comprising plainchant manuals and methods of singing or instruction on different instruments, especially keyboard, violin and flute.
