Conductors shouldn’t smile at the end of a Shosty symphony
The title page for Alonso Mudarra’s three books of vihuela music, complete with a sexy drawing of a lutenist. I’ve been going through the contents of this for a few months and at about 5 this morning I finished my editions of everything in the first and second books! This includes making it legible and neat, correcting some obvious mistakes by the composer, and writing some commentary on each. The third book is for vihuela and voice so that will be a different endeavour altogether.
