A Catalog of Music for the Cornett (Publications of the Early Music Institute)by Michael Collver
Synopses & Reviews
"... a major contribution to cornett research and belongs in the library of every cornettist." --Historic Brass Society
"... scrupulously detailed... The first successful attempt to provide a comprehensive reference book on the cornett and its music. Recommended for both upper-division undergraduate libraries and collections serving music scholars and performers." --Choice
"... it will likely stand as the definitive bibliography of cornett music for many years."
Michael Collver and Bruce Dickey have compiled detailed listings of pieces for the cornett from 200 printed collections as well as more than 1,000 pieces preserved in manuscripts from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centures. Based largely on primary sources, the catalog provides full bibliographic information, instrumentation, locations of surviving copies, and modern editions.
