General Information

Title: (of the first edition) SEPTIESME LIVRE DES // CHANSONS A QVATRE // PARTIES CONVENABLES TANT // aux instrumentez comme à la Voix. Imprime à LOUAIN par Pierre Phalese Libraire Iure. Lan. MDLX.

Subgenre: Chansons Voices: 4.

Description: This collection seems to have been very successful, because it was many times reprinted by Pierre Phalèse and later by his son Pierre Phalèse II.Other printers in the Netherlands also printed a "Livre septiesme" (the title was changed by Phalèse in 1573), some of them copies of one or the other Phalèse print, some with additional works by contemporary composers.
The list of editions and the table of the works contained in one or more of these editions is based on the article:
Henry Vanhulst (Bruxelles), Un succès de l'édition musicale: le Septiesme livre des chansons a quatre parties (1560 - 1661/3); Revue belge de Musicologie / Belgisch Tijdschrift voor Muziekwetenschap, Vol. 32/33 (1978/1979), pp. 97-120 and the dissertation by Anne Tatnall Gross (see the link list below for both).
