From the uploader's library. No dates were found for Alan Lumsden (his 1962 Preface removed) but he is mentioned in various early music renderings playing the serpentine, medieval sackbut, tenor cornett, etc... from the 60s to the 80s... This edition is based on the autograph in the library of the Royal College of Music (Ms. N°595). In it the "Original markings of phrasing and dynamics have been sparingly supplemented to secure uniformity in the ensemble, while the sparse fingering indications are all original."
