Anonymus, Ricercar octavi toni The organbook of Matthias Rottenau (Mus. Ms. 40615 from the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin) contains numerous works from unnamed composers. All the works contained are sorted by category. First come all the preludes (Preambuli), than Introiti, Toccate, Canzoni, Capricci and finally the Ricercari. The first bunch of pieces in each section is preceded by a nicely drawn Initial, giving the title of the piece, the tonus and (though not always) the composer. The last bunch of pieces in each section go without initial, though space is left open where one could be drawn in. So it's only a supposition that the pieces without initial that follow for example, the Ricercari with initial, are Ricercari as well. This (supposedly) Ricercar is a well written three voice piece. It is a monothematic piece, so it could equally well be called a fugue. The recording was done with the Hauptwerk software and the sampleset, made by Sonus Paradisi, of the Bader organ in the Walburgiskerk, Zutphen. Free score available here: http://partitura.org/index.php/anonymus-ricercar-secundi-toni-3/
