(Explanation of the Filters)
Important: All filters can be combined.
Currently the fields can only be erased manually by emptying them and clicking on Filter... once.

Composer: You can search for every string inside of the field for composer (case-sensitive).
Incipit search: You can search incipits to find concordances or similarities. For this abctab2ps code is used, but with all ornaments filtered out (cf:
It is enough to notate the highest notes. To mark the next note, you should use a space. For example you will find the famous Bourree of Weiss, if you inpute | ,a e. Adding a further space between the notes adds a placeholder exactly at this place. With x1, x2 etc. you have the possibility to add variable placeholders (one, two etc.).y
Bars can be added with | to increase the accuracy of the search, but with the disadvantage, that the bars then aren't filtered out.
Instruments: Here you can filter the instruments, that are in the database (lowercase means all connected mss, including concordances, uppercase all mss with notated music of this instrument). But always the whole source will be shown:
Baroque lute = bl/BL
Renaissance lute = rl/RL
Angelique = ang/ANG
Baroque guitar = bg/BG
Cittern = CT
Mandora = ma/MA
Theorbo = TH
Other plucking instruments = VS
Accord Nouveaux = ACN
Ensemble = EN
Key: Major keys use upper case and minor keys lower case, that can be followed by b or # (e.g. f# for f sharp minor or Eb for E flat Major). Unfortunately, as some keys have historically different denotations (e.g. D# and Eb), at the moment possibly not all entries will be found.
Furthermore it is possible in the meantime to filter herewith prints (= Print) or used type of tablature: French Tablature = FTab, Italian Tablature = ITab, German Tablature = DTab.
Signature: The searching always starts with the beginning of the signature and refers to all sources (case-sensitive). Only the short signatures are used. You can search for all sources in one land (e.g. A for Austria or US for the United States) or for libraries (A-KR = Kremsmünster).
Title: You can search for every string in the title of movements (case-insensitive).
