Misc. Comments

The 4 pieces have been typeset and are all over the place in both categories : compositions & collections, so I don't know... Perhaps a regrouping might be envisaged, if this edition can be kept, that is ? - Jurabe

The four were published as a set of four in 1608, so there’s no reason why items designed as a set can’t be uploaded to this page (for the collection), and individual editions of the four canzonas can go on separate pages. Also my Gabrieli worklist doesn’t specify these as for viols (and most of the performances are by brass/cornettos and sackbuts).

All right then, I'll finish my upload, but what's the use then of all those scattered duplicate typesets, what do they add that is 'noteworthy' ? Except to have the complete score that is (when I was performing I chose to purchase separate parts only for pecuniary reasons). Now if a typeset is based on a never published score, that is very useful indeed, or if it allows to view a score without any subsequent more or less useful editorial additions (1), that is also useful. The notion of 'usefulness' is of course disputable. What I have disputed several times on the site, is that some (most?) typesetters copy not from never published manuscripts or difficult to find publications but from extant ones. Incidentally you're right about the instrumentation : the mistake is corrected -
(1)Albert Einstein's present edition is a model of sparse editorship ! - Jurabe
