In 1622 Johannes Schultz had his "Musikalische Lüstgarte" printed, an anthology of 59 compositions for 2 to 8 voices, partly pure instrumental works, but partly also vocal works. We publish these pieces in individual volumes, which are sorted according to the number of voices. In the score and parts we use treble clef and bass clef. For gamba players the tenor parts are also available in alto clef. This collection is intended for sociable music-making and singing, whereby our practical edition is aimed primarily at instrumentalists. Because of the varying and not always small range, the pieces are suitable for strings, especially for viols. But they are also very suitable for recorders and other wind instruments or for mixed ensembles.

Errata / Addenda
