The survival of the Leiden Choirbooks from the iconoclastic fury in 1566 seems to indicate that the manuscripts were carefully kept somewhere under lock and key in the church. Today, these choirbooks provide unique and extremely valuable proof of the rich musical life of 16th century Holland.

Even though musical practice flourished greatly in Dutch churches in the 16th century, extremely little evidence of this has survived in Dutch archives and libraries.
