VistaMare Musica

Welcome to VistaMare Musica, a site dedicated to Renaissance and Baroque music scores, with an accent on music for (or suitable to) viola da gamba or viola da gamba consort.

All the scores available here are original editions made from original sources, trying to join the clarity and easy of use of modern music engraving with the greatest possible fidelity to the source. Without claiming to be critical editions, they attempt to give the performer a reasonable account of the original text.

All the scores —as well as all the contents of this site— are under the Creative Common by-sa license. This means they can all be freely downloaded, copied, distributed, performed and recorded.

To create them, MuseScore has been used, an open source music notation software competing for easy of use and features with widely used, commercial programmes.
