Abstract:
Petition from and Privilege granted to Marcantonio Rossi for publishing choral work by the late Giovanni Guidetti of Bologna. The document is notable because it concerns a musical work that initially received a privilege in 1581 from Pope Gregory XIII. That privilege was printed in the original 1582 edition, and a summary of that privilege was reprinted in a 1589 edition of the work subsequent to Gregory XIII’s death.
