Excerpt from Catalogue of Manuscript Music in the British Museum, Vol. 1: Sacred Vocal Music
The Catalogue of which this is the first volume will include the whole of the Manuscript Music in the British Museum, except that in the case of liturgical manuscripts, whether of the... Roman, Greek, or Lutheran Church, only those portions which contain harmonized music are described.
The present volume is devoted exclusively to Sacred Vocal Music, its contents being classified under subject-headings, a full list of which is given in the table on p. V. Vol. II, which may be expected within a year, will comprise Secular Vocal Music, and Vol. III, completing the work, Instrumental Music, Treatises on Music, a Reference-list of musical instruments depicted in manuscripts, and other miscellaneous matter. For the convenience of those who are interested in one class of music only, and for other reasons, each volume will have its own indices and thus be complete in itself.
Mr. A. Hughes-hughes is responsible for the compilation of the entire Catalogue.
