Misc. Comments

In the collection Psalmes, Sonets and Songs, this is for 5 voices, but the preface to that collection includes "a clear explanation that most of the songs had originally been for one voice and instrumental consort but had been adapted to words in all the five parts." (Source: Grove Music) Pages for the individual songs that came from a consort version are tagged as such, but the collection page is tagged for the 5-voice version.
