Summary/Abstract: The article examines notated musical folklore collections with records from the first four decades of the 20th century kept in the Ethnographic Archive of the Institute of Ethnology and Folklore Studies with Ethnographic Museum at the BAS. The archival musical folklore collections are a documentary testimony of a folklore repertoire which existed in a certain period of time as well as of the development of the process of documentation of folklore musical materials. Two archival documents, the only ones in the musical biographies of the people who recorded them, Neno Dimov and Tsanko Tsankov, are presented and analyzed.The first document is a valuable description of the richness of the folklore repertoire of urban/rural musical environment and represents a stage of the development of the musical and folklore research and analytical work of the time. The identification of the author of the second archival collection reveals a remarkable figure of the Bulgarian musical past together with the precise and critical reading of the musical theoretician and composer Dobri Hristov in his hand-written review.The significance of this documentary material refers to the broad context of the cultural musical history and the rationalization of the processes in the development of the musical folklore studies.
