Yes - I know the Weyrauch of course, and have pondered over this and many other MSS to boot. For instance - the Weiss British Library MS in particular is interesting:pogmoor wrote:The only evidence I've come across is what can be deduced from comparing manuscripts. If you look at the Weyrauch tablature of Bach's BWV 997 you can see that the Sarabande includes what must be a second time bar.
I suppose that's the dilemma in a nutshell - contradictory evidence, and apparently no contemporary written explanations - not only of repeat signs, but also of many of the signs signifying decorations. Perhaps signs were used inconsistently and musicians expected to exercise their own choice.Mark Clifton-Gaultier wrote:The evidence of the London MS is at least inconsistent and ambiguous - the Haslemere, I have to admit, is visually consistent and speaks against me - and yet musically the repeats feel so wrong but I haven't, so far, found any written description outside of Castillion.
