Misc. Comments

A huge number of pieces can be subsumed as something like "Dowland's Galliard". The titles and sources differ. Sometimes they are anonymous, sometimes a galliard can be from uncertain ascription, but probably by Dowland, a galliard can be probably incorrectly attributed to Dowland and there can be an "obviously poor version". They should be distinguished as done by Poulton and Lam in their book "The Collected Lute Music of John Dowland": "Dowland's Galliard" (No.20), "John Dowland's Galliard" (No.21) and "Dowland's First Galliard" (No.22). (And No.76 "A Galliard", No.82 "A Galliard", No.83 "Dowland's Galliard", ...) Also, have a look at the appendix of the quoted book.
