FOR AID in preparing the present resume of Spanish music to 1530 I am indebted to so numerous a company of friends that I must content myself in this preface with no more than a token alphabetical list. In an earlier article - "Music Research in Spanish Libraries," published in Notes of the Music Library Association, sec. ser. X, i (December, 1952, pp. 49-57) - Richard Hill did kindly allow me to itemize my indebtednesses to the Spanish friends whose names make up two-thirds of the following list. The reader who has seen that article already knows how keenly felt are my gracias. Fernando Aguilar Escrich, Norberto Almandoz, H.K. Andrews, Higinio Angles, Jesus Bal y Gay, Robert D.

Christmas music from baroque Mexico by Robert Stevenson( )

Shakespeare's religious frontier by Robert Stevenson( Book )

14 editions published between 1958 and 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

THIS slight volume is addressed not to Shakespearean special ists, but rather to the general public. My chief purpose has been to view Shakespeare's manipulation of his clergy. The last three chapters deal with ancillary problems. Two articles in this collection have already been published - "Shakespeare's Cardinals and Bishops" in The Crozer Quarterry, April, 1950; "Shakespeare's Interest in Harsnet's Declaration" in Publications of the Modern Language Association, September, 1952. I appreciate the Editors' permission to reprint these essays in the present volume. I also thank Professors Gerald Eades Bentley and Lily Bess Campbell for encourage ment and advice during the writing of the first, fifth, and last pieces in this collection. Neither is however to be held re sponsible for any errors discovered by reviewers. All of the essays in this volume except the first were written either at The Folger Shakespeare Library in 1950 or at The Huntington Library in 1952. I thank the directors and staffs of both libraries for their many exceptional kindnesses. Miss Mary Neighbour of Oxford has placed me further in her debt by typing the completed collection

Juan Bermudo by Robert Stevenson( Book )

18 editions published between 1960 and 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

BERMUDO alone of the many Spanish theorists and composers of the 16th century seems to have written anything specifically for New World use. All the more fitting is it, then, to have completed this monograph in a part of the Spanish Indies that was stirring every Andalusian's imagination during the days when he was first sending his books across the Atlantic. In every way his was a remarkable personality. He was the first to compose and publish any organ music in Spain. As if the publication of such music in staff-notation were not enough he also published the first Spanish keyboard piece in tablature. He was the first in Spain to print any music in score. He is cited by Pincherle as the first to publish a harp method anywhere. He pioneered with the first treatise specifically designed for female use. He also "enjoys" the distinction of having become in Tapia's Verge! de Musica (1570) the most ruthlessly plagiarized writer in Spanish musical history. If bulk determines preeminence he stands above even Tomas de Santa Maria - who published only one volume, and that containing considerably less text. If range of interests determines rank no one else writing in Spanish during his century even approaches him. Nor does anyone else in Spanish have so many authorities at his fingertips
