Susanne van Soldt Manuscript

Well, this manuscript is bringing a lot of traffic to my site, and for good reason; there is almost no information about it online.  If you are a fan of Les Witches’ corresponding album, you are likely as frustrated as I am.  The only source I have been able to find is sold by the Royal Society for Music History of the Netherlands (KVMN).  It is found in Volume 3 of the Monumenta Musica Neerlandica.  If you are in the USA, you may have to contact them.  Their Paypal integration did not work for American addresses.

The book is wonderful!
