Ileborgh Tablature

The Ileborgh Tablature is a source of early Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia.

The tablature consists of seven folios 14.2 x 10.7 cm (earlier scholarship relied on incorrect measurements, 28 x 21 cm (Wolff, Grove)). The full title is Incipiunt praeludia diversarium notarum secundum modernum modum subitliter et diligentor collecta cum mensuris diversis hic infra annexis per fratrem Adam Ileborgh Anno Domini 1448 tempore sui rectoriatus in stendall. The musical contents of the tablature is as follows:

  1. Praeambulum in C et potest variari in d f g a
  2. Praeambulum bonum super C manualiter et variatur ad omnes
  3. Praeambulum bonum pedale seu manuale in d
  4. Praeambulum super d a f et g
  5. Aliud praeambulum super d manualiter et variatur super a g f et c
  6. Mensura trium notarum supra tenorem Frowe al myn hoffen an dyr lyed
  7. Mensura duorum notarum eiusdem tenoris
  8. Mensura sex notarum eiusdem tenoris

The five Christoph Wolff, dispute both points and maintain that, since the music does not compare to contemporary South German sources, Ileborgh must have been an unimportant peripheral figure (Wolff, Grove). One thing is certain, though: this collection is the earliest surviving instance of organ music containing a separate pedal part.
