General Information

The Codex Speciálník is a late 15th or early 16th-century speciálník (i.e., special songbook) originating from a monastery in the region of Praha (Prague). Its eclectic mix of Medieval and Renaissance a cappella sacred music is matched only by its briliant juxtapositions of well-known and obscure pieces and composers. Containing 212 pieces by 34 composers for two, three, and four voices, the Codex is a treasure trove for musicologist and musician alike.

Publication date and place: ca. 1500 manuscript at Muzeum východních Čech, Hradec Králové, Czech Republic. – Manuscript .
