    Abstract:
    In the right panel of Hieronymous Bosch's triptych "Garden of Earthly Delights" (dating from between 1490 and 1510), that illustrates Hell, one can find several music instruments and musicians depicted. A detail shows a choir singing from a score inscribed on a pair of buttocks, next o an open choir book under a lute. Gregório Paniagua transcribed this triple-time "melody from Hell" adding to it the text "Codex Gluteo Hieronimus van Aeken Alleluia, Alleluia" and recorded it in the CD "Codex Glvteo".
