1. This built on the work of #, who printed words in this way previously.
2. Music notation originated in the # century, with neumatic notation.
3. By the 13th and 14th centuries, notation began to take its # form.
4. From the 14th century, music began to be arranged by part instead of layed out in # format.
5. Two benefits of arranging notation in this way were that it was more #, and individual lines were more coherent for the performer.
6. However, one problem with this layout was that performers could not see what their colleagues were # as easily.
7. When music printing was first invented, this meant that transmission of polyphony was much easier and therefore became more widespread, but the parts were still #.
8. Petrucci initially ran the pages through the printing press # times, but he later combined the processes of printing words and of printing the stave in order to make the process more efficient.
9. Pierre # developed on this to create an all-in-one printing method for notation in the 1520s.
10. Petrucci was also probably the first to create small part books that were oblong in shape. While according to # partbooks were %22very popular%22, it still may be argued that the oblong shape was a %22commercial mistake%22, used simply to make the alignment process easier. (See p42, Composers and Their Songs).
11. Petrucci%27s first publication included mostly #.
12. This was probably on the recommendation of Petrus #, a Dominican friar and music collector. (See Stanley Boorman article).
13. Petrucci was probably the first to include # to rich donors and famous people in his sheet music, for two possible reasons. Firstly, the manuscripts produced before Petrucci%27s printed notation were produced on commission and therefore did not require a dedication. More over, Petrucci may have been using an appeal to celebrity, to draw in the public.
14. Despite the developments in music printing around 1500, many # continued to use custom made manuscripts, perhaps as a show of status and wealth, or for their aesthetic value. An example of this may be seen in the elaborate manuscript of %22Canon in honour of Henry VIII%22, in which the notation wraps around a red rose in a circular shape.
