The Wikipedia article about Froberger seems competent and well-written (unlike much of Wikipedia!), but it contains a phrase which mystifies me.

In 1649 Froberger travelled back to Austria. On his way back he stopped in Florence and Mantua to show the arca musurgica, a powerful compositional device Kircher taught him, to some of the Italian princes.

Does anyone know what this arca musurgica, actually was?  Baz?

Indeed Neil - a kind of amateur composer's "toolbox". Have a look here...
