Misc. Comments

  • Grove Music lists this work under two categories:
Secular songs, and Psalms and devotional songs. The listing under Secular songs gives the instrumentation as 4 voices and lute, whereas the listing under Psalms and devotional songs gives no instrumentation. However, instrumentation is given under the individual titles where they are listed separately, and In this Trembling Shadow, If that a Sinner's Sighes be Angel's foode, and Where Sinne sore wounding, are listed as for 4 voices and lute.
  • Thou Mighty God is not listed at all, though there is a similar title, O God of Power Omnipotent. When the poore Criple by the poole did lye and When David's life by Saul was often sought are also not listed at all.
