Musical Treasures from Moravian Archives
Musical Treasures from Moravian Archives presents in critical editions music that was actively used in the Moravian communities of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Because much of the music used by the Moravians was home grown many of the volumes of MTMA will be of works composed by Moravian composers, i.e., those working directly in the Moravian communities themselves. A not insignificant portion of the music that survives in the various Moravian archives, however, originated from outside of those communities and was adopted by one or more of them for local use. Such pieces are also included in the series.
