Misc. Comments

According to Grove Music, "Songs for solo voice and lute appeared in the Tenori e contrabassi intabulati col sopran in canto figurato per cantar e sonar col lauto (Libro primo, 1509; Libro secundo, 1511), in which the lutenist Franciscus Bossinensis intabulated the lower parts of frottolas whose vocal originals had already been printed by Petrucci. The first book contains 70 such compositions, the second 56; each contains 20 or more ricercares as well. The six Petrucci volumes form a substantial collection of first-rate music in what must have been a well-established tradition of lute writing." [It's unclear whether the "six" volumes refers specifically to "Tenori e contrabassi . . .".]
