Many compositions from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries survive in an incomplete state. It was standard practice to publish each part in a separate partbook, often the size of a slender pamphlet. Not surprisingly, some of them have disappeared, leaving a large repertory of compositions that are missing one or more voices. Usually these compositions are not performed in concert or recorded, and sometimes they are not even transcribed or studied. If we were able to visualize them, we could get to know better also the compositions that have come to us complete. During the Spring School we will address this problem by reconstructing the missing parts of several compositions, at least hypothetically, taking into consideration the theoretical, methodological, analytical, and philological aspects that such a proposal entails.
