Editorial notes
Bracketed accidentals, and all other directions within square brackets, are editorial.
Use of the underlay repeat sign ij in the original print is represented by italicised text.
Underlay and capitalisation have been adjusted where necessary to preserve consistency between the parts, although original punctuation
has generally been retained as possibly indicative of required phrasing.
Bar 50: time-signature

, which should strictly imply a tripla diminution in the triple-time bars (dotted semibreve equal to previous minim).

However, the use of rests within this section, as well as the practicalities of performance, suggest that Byrd required the sesquialtera
diminution suggested in this score.
