In two volumes. The music found in Zanettis collection of 1645, published here in its entirety, represents a rare and valuable record of popular Italian dance music from the late 16th- to the mid-17th century. Although many earlier versions of these pieces for solo instruments survive (especially for lute and guitar), complete four-part versions are very rare. Zanettis collection is to the Italian repertoire what Praetoriuss famous Terpsichore. . . (1612) is to the French court repertoire, albeit Zanettis is less extensive.

The first 3 volumes are complete editions of the two main sources for 16th century Italian dance music.
