H. Husmann, "Echos und Makam"


Παλαιό Μέλος
I attach the paper "Echos und Makam. nach der Handschrift Leningrad, Öffentliche Bibliothek, gr. 127" by Heinrich Husmann (Archiv für Musikwissenschaft 36. Jahrg., H. 4. (1979), pp. 237-253), which deals with one Greek ms of the 18th c. preserved in St. Petersburg that contains a theoretical treatise on makams as well as a large number of secular songs in makam style. My guess is that the corresponding treatise is that by Kyrillos Marmarinos or possibly its some predecessor.


In the Academy Library of Romania there are also some threatises on exoteriki mousiki, written by Panagiotes Chalatzoglou and Kyrillos Marmarinos. Do you have something on Demetrios Cantemiri's Book of the Science of Music?




I apologise, but, in my opinion, you are not right. I am assured. I can prove it. Write to me in PM, we will discuss.
