Andrea Hartmann

Wednesday, June 1, 2011

Since 2009, the RISM Germany working group and the RISM Zentralredaktion have published catalogs in their series Music Manuscripts in Germany (Musikhandschriften in Deutschland). Based in part on records from the RISM database, the catalogs are geared toward the holding institutions and their users, as well as scholars and musicians working primarily with the materials. Printed copies in book form are produced for libraries and archives. In addition, one can download the catalogs as PDF files free through the document server Qucosa.

Volume 3 in the series was recently published:

Andrea Hartmann and Ortun Landmann, Die Musikhandschriften im Unitätsarchiv der Evangelischen Brüder-Unität Herrnhut: Thematischer Katalog (Music Manuscripts in the Archives of the Moravian Church in Herrnhut: Thematic Catalog), Musikhandschriften in Deutschland 3 (Munich: RISM-Arbeitsgruppe Deutschland; Frankfurt am Main: RISM Zentralredaktion, 2010).

ISBN 978-3-86780-191-1

The archives of the Moravian Church in Herrnhut, Germany (D-HER) is home to a collection of over 3,000 music manuscripts, bearing witness to the particular, largely self-contained music cultivated in the church. This collection, which includes music from the churches in Ebersdorf, Gnadau, Gnadenfrei, Herrnhut, Kleinwelka, Neudietendorf and Niesky, was first described for the Répertoire International des Sources Musicales between 1967 and 1971. Beginning in 1994, the records were input into the RISM database in an expanded form. This work was completed in 2000.

Through this new catalog, one can gain insight into the music manuscripts in Herrnhut as a whole.
