  • Editorial Notes

    • [Thematic-index numbers are those found in Poulton, John Dowland; e.g. [Galliard, lute, P. 104]; prefer the titles of secular songs and instrumental music found in New Grove (Poulton) to the modernized spellings in New Grove, 2nd ed. (Holman), but do not routinely change existing headings.]
