Monuments of Seventeenth-Century Music

General Editor: Jeffrey Kurtzman

The Monuments series is dedicated to large collections and anthologies of music, often from a variety of sources. Taking advantage of online publishing, the editions will feature a variety of search and browse functions and will present individual printable scores with their own critical and performance notes.
