and other instrumental pieces bearing characteristic titles
included in anthologies of Elizabethan and Jacobean music.

The rare titles with the wording as it occurs in the form appearing in Shakespeare plays are shown in capitals in the main text; many have come down to us as tunes, most often in lute tablature, whose original text is no longer traceable and so the significance of the names of tunes may well be lost. This survey attempts to give clear indications of which publications of this tuneful repertoire have been made available. In some cases editors have found certain material useful as a basis on which to underlay the many Shakespeare song texts for which no specific music has come down to us.

Bibliographical reference to dance, song types and other pieces are incorporated in the main survey bearing a sequence number up to 415 in the right hand column, and complementing these, from 416 onwards are to be found a great many in the NOTES, GLOSSARY which is ranged alphabetically and provides descriptions of the genres and other key words with further repertoire suggestions some of which may prove potential candidates as incidental music in the production of the plays.

Where two or more sequence numbers are shown, the main source of bibliographical information together with the musical incipit will be found between 1and 415, otherwise at the number in bold print. Included here is repertoire bearing a characteristic rather than a form title alone. For the pieces for which a composer is attributed, their names are indicated within curves after a title; fuller detail will be found in the main text under the setting number and in the Composer index.
