See just my madrigal settings here.
Goal: No goals for 2018. Just setting things as they occur to me.
- Comparative madrigals! Multiple settings of the same text by madrigal composers of different periods.
- (2020-07-02) 1,500 pieces!
- (2020-06-07) Gabrieli 4-part 1576 collection finished!

Errors I know exist, which I need to fix.
- got date (decade) wrong on Marenzio's il terzo libro de madrigali a 6
- Vincenzo Ruffo la gamba: source has a typo (Vapriccio)
- Ferrabosco Susanna Fayre: parts use complete-score include file
- Banchiera: Canzon sesta change spelling of title
- Gastoldi 1598 duos mistakenly list Venice as publication location rather than Milan
- Canti C 007 - tritone leap in bass (maybe 0005, but I think 007--came across it while playing in ensemble)
- Raverii: tenor parts of most pieces say "part 3 or 4" instead of "part 3 of 4"
- Morley 3 parts, #17, final note (F) in bassus is octave too high
- Fix colored parts away from 2/3 in C time to 2. 4
- Vaghi boschetti by de wert: correct syllable breakup of Cedri~et (have: Ced -- ri~et)
- Marenzio #11: fix spelling of upload file (filename has #10's name)
- Susanna Fayre by Ferrabosco doesn't credit Ferrabosco in the music. Also, need to modernize spelling.
- Tasso's name spelled in a5 wert pieces.
- Gabrieli's name spelled Gabrielli in some piece.
What is Hawthorne Music?
An in-joke, mostly. The person who introduced me to the viola da gamba later became my landlord. She lives on Hawthorne Street in Dallas, TX, in an up-stairs/downstairs duplex, and owns both. The downstairs apartment had a vacancy, and I moved in. Two other mutual friends referred to this arrangement as something like "The Hawthorne Early Music Center of Dallas". I adopted it has the publishing house for my music, which is roughly based on the look-and-feel of the late George Hunter's editions (well-known in the viol community) published under Northwood Music (now owned Charlie Ogle). None of mine have been physically published yet, but I have plans for the future...
