Synopsis[edit]

Arnolt Schlick (1460-after1521) was a blind, German organist and composer. His use of language suggests that he was from Heidelberg. His "Spiegel der Orgelmacher und Organisten, the first work published in German about organ building and organ playing," gave "an accurate insight into the skills of the organ builder. In ten chapters he dealt with the measurements of pipes, the alloying and working of the metal to be used, the choice of registers and the nature of wind-chests, bellows etc, and gave advice on tuning and on the most suitable positions for an organ (see also ORGAN, §V, 3). In the Tabulaturen etlicher lobgesang, the first printed German organ tablatures, Schlick published a number of his own compositions as practical complement to his Spiegel der Orgelmacher. In the introduction he discussed the meaning of the notation, defended himself against Virdung's accusations (see Virdung's Musica getutscht, Basle, 1511/R), and categorized the compositions. The book contains nine works for organ, in three to five parts, 12 lute pieces with ‘zwo stimmen zu zwicken und ein zu singen’, and three works for lute with ‘drei stimmen zu zwicken’. Among the organ works a five-part Salve regina is outstanding; long sections use an imitation technique to be found later in, for example, the music of Sweelinck."[1]
