I'm a Unix engineer, currently at Cisco in the mobile packet core space, who loves early music. I only sing on occasion, with my primary musical outlet being the viol. And part of my aim in typesetting music is to provide repertoire for viol players, especially the very rich 16th century vocal repertoire which is rarely available in part form that's friendly for instrumentalists. All the scores I have uploaded here are available in part form on IMSLP or http://dfwviols.com.
I only set music from original notation, and typically maintain the original note values and pitches, but if anyone needs a transposition, just email me. At some point I may write scripts to allow people to transpose arbitrarily, which will be at dfwviols.com. If I can find the time and inspiration.
I also take requests on occasion, provided I have a source. Here's a list of facsimiles I have, in digital form (I also own lots of physical ones): http://dfwviols.com/facsimiles.txt
Let me know if you'd like a copy of any of the above. I like to get these out, and sometimes give away portal HDs containing them. Current size is 300G total.
