Instrument: Clavicytherium, Philippe Humeau, 1974 (Saint Michel de Provence) after anonymous South German model c.1480, preserved in Contrarini & Correr collection Venice; Pythagorean tuning
Playing time: 54'
Recording date: December 1995 (Vienna)
Johannes von Lublin was a Polish organist and theorist of the first half of the 16th century. The present collection is dated by its preface, although several of the intabulations are probably earlier in origin, and some later. Composers given above are those of the original pieces on which the keyboard transcriptions are based.
The source is another obscure one, but the argument for its relevancy is emphatic by way of performance, based on the oldest surviving clavicytherium (and oldest surviving plucked keyboard instrument).
