Bach Digital

Developed by the Bach Archive in Leipzig, Bach Digital is an online database which gives access to information on compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach and members of his family. Early manuscripts of such compositions are a major focus of the website, which provides access to high-resolution digitized versions of many of these. Scholarship on manuscripts and versions of compositions is summarized on separate pages, with references to scholarly sources and editions.

Capirola, Vincenzo

The Vincenzo Capirola Lute Book

Dated around 1517, the so-called Capirola Lute Book is today considered one of the most important sources for lute music of the early 16th century. The music of Capirola has been preserved in manuscript, thanks to a pupil of his named Vidal, who, driven by the intention of ensuring the posterity of his master's work, not only wrote down the tablature of his pieces for lute, but also ordered that they be decorated with beautiful marginal drawings, perhaps in the belief that the beauty of the images would make it easier for future generations to consider them as an object worthy of preservation.
