Corner, D.G.: Gesängbucher

(GDM)

There are several editions of D.G.Corner's Gesängbucher; GDM states that the initial collection went through successive revisions, with a change of name in the 3rd (1649) edition; but other Companions imply that the 1649 Geistliche Nachtigal was a separate collection. The following list of editions and contents is taken from GDM.

(a) Gross Catholische Gesängbuch. Fürth, Nürnberg, 1625

Contained 400 hymns (330 German, 70 Latin). Sources included
