11Jan24: Edited 27 more pieces from Phalèse Hortus Musarum (1552). These consist entirely of vocal intabulations, mostly of popular pieces of the time by Crécquillon, Clément, Sandrin, and others. One of particular interest is a beautiful piece by composer Jehan Loys, whom I was unable to find in Grove or online. One imagines that this composer wrote many other pieces, but apparently they have been lost, which is a shame.
