    Twelve pieces are ascertainably by Scheidt, three are early versions of pieces from the Tabulatura nova, and ten can be assigned to Scheidt with absolute certainty on the basis of stylistic criteria. It was long believed that some of these works had been written by Sweelinck. But Dirksen, as co-editor of the Sweelinck Works for Keyboard Instruments, applies his vast stylistic knowledge to this matter and, after a detailed study of the sources, separates the pupil Scheidt from his teacher Sweelinck.

    The Urtext edition presents the musical text in the form of a practical source edition. It guarantees authenticity, since it follows the notation in the sources as closely as possible and reproduces several characteristics of the notational practice of the time.
