Title: „Wer wälzet uns den Stein?” Problémy slovensko-maďarskej spolupráce v oblasti hudobnohistorického výskumu
Author: Ilona Ferenczi

Abstract: ‘Who will roll away the stone for us?’ – Problems Regarding the Slovak-Hungarian Collaboration in Music Research
In the frame of my lecture on the occasion of the 75th birthday celebration of Hungarian musicologist Dénes Bartha in 1983 I presented the board of the binding of the Vietoris Book of Tablature and its part enabling to compare 89 fragments or complete compositions of the primary version with their definitive shape, as great majority of these pieces are also found in the final version of the tablature. The church songs in Slovak and Latin from the first specimen were arranged from the aspect of content, order or music, and written anew. In the material of the binding a fragment of other kind occurs: basso continuo of some works from the 17th century, among them six-voice composition Wer wälzet uns den Stein von des Grabes Tür (Who will roll away the stone from the tomb for us) by Andreas Hammerschmidt in Slovak translation (Kdo odwalj kamen ...). This fact further strengthens the hypothesis that Vietoris Book of Tablature belonged to an organist from a place inhabited mostly by Slovaks. Tracing the discovery and on the basis of fragmentary source we deal with problems of nationality in music history of Hungary and modify our historical viewpoint as the correct historical evaluation is always problematic – in Hungary as well as outside its borders.
