A smaller collection, Novus partus, appeared in1617. Both are important for their size, catholicity of taste, influence and historical context. His extensive manual on lute playing, printed in Thesaurus and revised in Novus partus, concentrates on fingering techniques; it was later translated into English. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ADVERTISEMENT Read more on Last.fm.
