The Dow Partbooks: a waste of a day…

August 14, 2011

I thought I’d edit a straight-forward piece for voices and viols from The Dow Partbooks, Oxford Christ Church, Mus.984-988, renowned for their very clear calligraphy. I thought I’d pick one with a Latin text, with words underlaid in all parts, that hadn’t been published previously in a modern edition: a Christus resurgens by a Mr Tayler.

A complete waste of a day, as shown by the relatively simple Alleluia close. Perhaps the several “unpublished” pieces are unpublished for very good reason.
