The Glogauer Liederbuch, a medieval songbook made up of 292 sacred and secular songs and instrumental music, was collected around 1480. It is the earliest known surviving set of part books (descant, tenor and contratenor) and is an important source of 15th century musical material. The manuscript was named at a later date after the town of Glogau in Lower Silesia. Formerly kept at the Prussian State Library in Berlin, it was taken to Grussau Abbeu, Silesia, in 1941 to protect it from Allied bombing. Under Polish sovereignty after WWII, it apparently disappeared until 1977, when the missing manuscripts were found to be in the Jagiellonian Library in Krakow, where it now resides as a part of the Berlinka art collection.
