A new English keyboard manuscript of the seventeenth century: autograph music by Draghi and Purcell

1995

Abstract

MILLENNIAL fever seems to have infected even the sober arena of musicology and music manuscripts. We have heard the cry of 'Musicological Event of the Century' too frequently in recent years, trumpeting everything from the discovery of the autograph of Mozart's Fantasy and Sonata in C minor (K. 457 and K. 475) in a seminary in Pennsylvania, to the recent sale of the Haydn score of four of his op. 50 string quartets found in Australia, the reappearance of a Schumann symphony autograph, or (at the opposite extreme) last year's scandal of the six 'lost' Haydn keyboard sonatas, which were quickly revealed to be open forgeries.
