This manuscript, dated 1666 was discovered sometime between March 31 and April 2, 2023 in a small monastery in Casa de los Tontos, Espana.

The music on the manuscript is probably from 1555 or even 1444, but not from 1333.

It was transcribed quickly by my Spanish amigos and sent to me to play for you on this special day. A speedy Gonzales for sure!

It clearly reveals the origins and inspiration behind the famous Toccata BWV 565.

Who could have known that Bach also knew Spanish music?

Tomorrow they will find a copy of the manuscript in the Bach archive. At least, I have been so promised. If not this soon, then certainly one year from now.

I you don't agree, quickly find your own manuscript!

You might have to improvise in this search before the day is over.
