Misc. Comments

  • According to Grove Music, the original instrumentation was SATB voices with lute or orpharion and bass viol. The versions for 4 voices and lute were published in The Old English Edition (London, 1897-8), and the versions for voice and lute were published in 1922. The Introduction to the The Old English Edition of the collection, however, states that the 4-voice version was probably an afterthought and not intended with lute/viol, which was used for the single-voice version.
