† Items so marked consist mainly of commentary where references are to page numbers.

The names of Composers are capitalised except where they are mainly acting in their capacity as editor.

( ) Symbols in curves represent manuscripts or historic prints without a complete modern edition.

*An asterisk against a reference indicates page number where the contents has no numbered sequence; ms sources which have both numbered sequence and folio pagination are so indicated in the text where both could help identification.

Suggested repertoire traced or identified from recordings.

Lute music is printed as keyboard score unless tablature (/t in the text) is indicated.

‘Virginal Books’ are included for the often interesting harmonisation to the opening ‘statement’ of a popular tune by an Elizabethan composer on which the sometimes much elaborated versions are based. (Naturally the delicate tone of a virginal would have precluded the use of such a keyboard instrument itself in the theatre band of the time). Format for consort material is in score and parts unless otherwise shown (s score; p parts); editions for single instrument and accompaniment will have a separate part for each.

Place of publication is London (Brighton for London Pro Musica, Guildford for The Lute Society, and Leeds for Boethius Press), unless otherwise shown. Single pieces of printed music are not included here but cited in the text. The symbols printed in bold represent a first choice of materials relating most exactly to the specific repertoire as recommended in the survey. Historic composers are shown in capitals and compilers and editors in lower case.

An esssential survey with music of songs and dances in short score. (It has been considered that the Wooldridge revision (1893) (here CW) does not supersede this first edition, and the additional accompaniments provided by Macfarren and in the revised edition by Wooldridge could perhaps be rated as anachronistic). ‘The Reign of Elizabeth,’ pp. 98-243 and in particular, ‘Shakespeare’s use of music’ (pp. 205-239) provide much relevant detail. Repertoire suggestions are given in Long and other commentaries which adapt Chappell’s material replacing the words of ballads current c1600 in favour of song texts as found in Shakespeare.
