That's interesting! In an article in The Lute Society Magazine, Lynda Sayce listed a norwegian manuscript as a source of music for the 18th century german mandora, and I believe that was the Peder Bang manuscript. I asked her where she got that information, and she replied. I will look up the answer after my holiday. mvh Are To get on or off this list see list information at http://www.cs.dartmouth.edu/~wbc/lute-admin/index.html
