Apart from a rich collection of choirbook manuscripts the Bavarian State Library (Bayerische Staatsbibliothek) contains many part-books of choral music. Many of them are originally printed in Venice (Gardano or Scotto), in Antwerp (Phalèse or Susato) or Paris (Attaignant). A smaller amount originates from Prague, Heidelberg, Nuremberg and Lyon.
The underlying collection of Psalms has been assembled by Johann vom Berg, the publisher of music and spiritual books in Nuremberg in the 16th century. Except in the works by Josquin Desprez, Claudin de Sermisy and Thomas Stolzer the music seems not to have been written for these psalms. It looks like the music already existed, while the psalm texts were added later.
