Notes Only Pars prima and Pars secunda survive as prints. However, an apparently reliable MS copy of all four volumes survives in Dresden (Sächsischen Landesbibliothek MB 4o 217); see Lamott 1980, 30-31. The treatise includes the complete text of a number of compositions from Toccate I (1637), Toccate II, (1627) and Canzoni (1645)–included in a Adjunctum Frescobaldicum, or identified with the initials HF–as well as well as numerous brief, unattributed excerpts from those publications as examples of cadentie and passaggie. Lamott (1980) believes that all the Frescobaldi excerpts are based on the composer’s publications, even if they are sometimes altered and simplified, and that is the point of view followed here. Darbellay (1988) thinks that they derive from a manuscript transmission independent of the prints. Only a single composition, included in the Adjunctum Frescobaldicum, the Balletto 3, does not derive from the publications, and its attribution is considered doubtful.
