[+] Silbiger, Alexander. “Is the Italian Keyboard intavolatura a Tablature?” Recercare 3 (1991): 81-103.

Intabulating polyphonic music for the keyboard presents certain problems of representation, whether the transcriptions are sixteenth-century arrangements or twentieth-century modern editions. While an intabulation is often thought of as a representation of the original work, in some cases, it might be better to consider it as a recomposition of its source.
