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

Quote
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...

Good gracious me!   Shocked  Now that has really boggled me for the rest of the evening!  What a magnificent thing!! Rather like a C17th version of CakeWalk or Finale Smiley)

"Vorpsprung durch Technik", as Froberger said in Germany Smiley

Sadly Gustav Leonhardt has left us.  His astounding legacy of recordings survives him.
