"Salve Festa Dies"

Salve Festa Dies is a collection of Renaissance Sacred Music in closed-score notation with handcrafted pages with typewritten words. These scores are easy to read, sing, and play.

This collection of music is mostly from the late Renaissance and includes the Gregorian chants that are integral to the music, and are tightly integrated with the rest of the music.

As the actual files are prepared and become available, the items below become links and by clicking on them, the piece will be downloaded to your computer, available for viewing or, most importantly, for printing. Once you have a printed copy, you are free to make as many photocopies as you wish. There are no copyrights. We ask you to not change the music in anyway and to leave the foundation’s logo and Internet address on the music to help make the DoveSong Sheetmusic Library known to others.

We hope to start putting these pieces online soon. When a selection becomes available, the name below will become a link, that you can click on to view or print the music. Links will have a blue color while names of selections that are not yet online will be black.
