Item description for Thesaurus Canticorum Flandrensium: Het gedrukte Nederlandse Liedboek in Vlaanderen (1508-1800): I: Bibliografie (Miscellanea Neerlandica) by G Huybens...
Between 1508 and 1800, numerous clerical and secular song books were published in the big cities of Antwerp, Bruges, Brussels, Ghent, Louvain and Mechelen in Flanders. They contained dozens of verse songs that were sung to popular tunes and written melodies. Topics were mainly hymns, mystical revelations, Christian teachings with all their commandments and prohibitions, and circumstances of everyday life (love and drinking songs). Some collections were highly acclaimed, as numerous reprints attest. The Thesaurus Canticorum Flandrensium (Part I) bibliographically presents 351 prints with reproductions of their title pages. This book is a handy tool for literary historians, musicologists, cultural anthropologists and specialists in the history of printmaking.
