Abstract

This dissertation aims to bring to light, and to categorise, the music for trumpet and cornetto contained in the great manuscript collection at Uppsala University, the so-called Düben collection. The dissertation will divide into four clear sections. After an introductory chapter on the Düben collection itself, chapter two will give an overview of the trumpet and cornetto music contained therein. This chapter - in addition to identifying composers, works and typical genres -will also centre round issues of musical style and of the etymology of instruments. Chapter three will present two unpublished works in a modern critical edition, complete with introduction and commentary. A handlist of the trumpet and cornetto music available within the collection then follows.
