GRANCINI, MICHEL'ANGELO
Messe, E Salmi Ariosi, Che Si Cantano Alli Vesperi Nelle Solennita Di Tutto L'Anno, Con le Letanie Della Madonna
Milan, Italy, Giorgio Rolla, 1647.8vo,,,Michel'Angelo Grancini (or Michelangelo Grancini) was born in Milan in 1605 and died in that city in 1669. He was an organist and composer of sacred music, including six books of psalms, of which our offering is one. It is a collection of masses, psalms, and airs, to be sung in four parts, with organ accompaniment. The book is dedicated to the Reverend Father Nicolo Bozali, the Inquisitor of Padua and contains a printed dedication page from the printer, Giorgia Rolla, which is dated 1647. This appears to be the tenor part, and has a curious collation: [2], C2, C, C2, C1, C1 to C10 and then it leaves off for the next 28 pages. The last page is numbered '46' and contains a 'Tavola' or table of the music. The book is bound in what appears to be contemporary printer's covers, on the front cover of which is hand-lettered the word 'Tenore'. Inside the front cover is an inscription: 'To Mr. C. A. Basset (or Masset) / as a remembrance from / C. (indecipherable) / La Salina Venez(?) Nov. 19th 1928'. Each psalm or mass begins with a rubricated initial letter. The musical notation is, of course, consistent with that used in the first part of the seventeenth century. The text block is thumbed at the corners, and there is some foxing throughout, but it is not untoward. The binding remains intact, although this is a delicate item and should be handled with care. .
