The Thüringer Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek Jena (University Library of Jena, Germany), ThULB, contains a treasure of printed music from the Renaissance. There are 58 different collections, all printed between 1526 and 1544, in Nuremberg, Wittenberg, Strassburg, Rome, Venice, Paris. Even in Italy or France a number of editions like this is not easy to be found. These 58 collections, bound together in 13 Portions (so-called Konvolute) contain nearly 2000 vocal works of all kinds: Masses, Motets, Hymns, Madrigals, Psalms, Magnificat, Lieder etc. Some of the authors are forgotten.
The collection was founded by Friedrich III, der Weise (Frederick the Wise, 1463-1525) who started a private collection in Wittenberg. The collection was expanded by his successors. In 1548 the collections was transferred to Jena. One of the contributors was Georg Rhau, the cantor of the Thomaskirche in Leipzig, who founded a printing company in Wittenberg later on. "Novum et insigne opus musicum sex, quinque et quatuor vocum, cuius in
Germania hactenus nihil simile usquam est editum, Norimb. 1537" is the subject of this transcription.
