Spanish by Carmen Álvarez below.

As part of our regular editing work in the Central Office, we add references to secondary literature—old and new—to records in the RISM database. We do this for many reasons: adding a catalog of works, correcting a mistaken attribution, or enhancing the record with details we did not yet have.

Lists, tables, and appendixes that scholars include in their publications make us happy: inventories, lists of works, tables of dedications, lists of sources, etc. are all able to shed light on the context of how a particular group of sources was created or used.

Recently, we've added these articles to RISM. When you search by the article's short title, you find all the sources that are in RISM that are mentioned or discussed by the author. In this way, you can get a virtual inventory of the sources through RISM.

H. Diack Johnstone, "Westminster Abbey and the Academy of Ancient Music: A Library once Lost and now Partially Recovered." Music and Letters 95, no. 3 (2014): 329–373
Short title in RISM: JohnstoneA 2014
Johnstone's article focuses on music manuscripts and printed music associated with the Academy of Ancient Music. The items are mostly preserved in Westminster Abbey today, but they are also scattered around other institutions in Great Britain. In addition, Johnstone mentions in his article that a number of anonymous pieces in the British Library's manuscript R.M.24.c.9. (RISM ID no. 800252651) are by Victoria and Byrd. Using our incipit search, we identified the composers of 18 anonymous pieces.


Samantha Owens, "Music via Correspondence: A List of the Music Collection of Dresden Kreuzorganist Emanuel Benisch," Understanding Bach 11 (2016): 39–56
Short title in RISM: OwensB 2016
This article takes a close look at an inventory of sacred music owned by Emanuel Benisch, an organist in Dresden. Interestingly, this inventory is in the hand of John Sigismond Cousser. Most of the works are by Giuseppe
Peranda and Vincenzo Albrici. Owens took the descriptions in Cousser's inventory and identified the concrete work - and manuscript - when possible. Those that are in RISM now contain a reference to this article.


Image: "O ardor o flamma" by Peranda, today in Uppsala, which we now know was once owned by Emanuel Benisch. Universitetsbibliotek (S-Uu) Vok. mus. i hs. 82:35:5. RISM ID no. 190025202. Available online.

Listomania

Como parte de nuestro trabajo diario en la oficina central, añadimos referencias a literatura secundaria —vieja y nueva— en las entradas de la base de datos de RISM. Hacemos esto por muchas razones: añadir un catálogo de obras, corregir errores de atribución o mejorar una entrada con detalles que aún no conocíamos.

Las listas, tablas y apéndices que los autores incluyen en sus publicaciones nos hacen felices: inventarios, listas de trabajos, tablas de dedicatorias, listados de fuentes, etc. todo ello arroja luz sobre cómo se formó o usó un grupo concreto de fuentes.

Cuando se realiza una búsqueda con el término del artículo, pueden encontrarse todas las fuentes registradas en RISM que son mencionadas por el autor. De esta forma, se puede obtener un inventario virtual de todas las fuentes a través de RISM. Recientemente, hemos añadido los siguientes artículos a RISM: 

H. Diack Johnstone, "Westminster Abbey and the Academy of Ancient Music: A Library once Lost and now Partially Recovered." Music and Letters 95, no. 3 (2014): 329–373
Término en RISM: JohnstoneA 2014
El artículo de Johnstone se centra en manuscritos y música impresa asociada a la Academy of Ancient Music. Las fuentes se conservan en su mayoría en Westminster Abbey, aunque también hay algunas diseminadas en otras instituciones de Gran Bretaña. Además, Johnstone menciona en su artículo que algunas de las piezas anónimas en el manuscrito R.M.24.c.9. —British Library—(RISM ID no. 800252651) son de Victoria y Byrd. Usando nuestra búsqueda de íncipit, hemos identificado los compositores de 18 piezas anónimas.


Samantha Owens, "Music via Correspondence: A List of the Music Collection of Dresden Kreuzorganist Emanuel Benisch," Understanding Bach 11 (2016): 39–56
Término en RISM: OwensB 2016
Este artículo trabaja de cerca un inventario de musica sacra que perteneció a Emanuel Benisch, un organista en Dresden. Este inventario estuvo en manos de Sigismond Cousser. La mayoría de trabajos son de Giuseppe Peranda y Vincenzo Albrici. Owens toma la descripción del inventario de Cousser e identificó los trabajos concretos —y manuscritos— cuando es posible. Aquellos que están en RISM ahora contienen una referencia a este artículo.
