Can I suggest that if/when the missing works on this page are added, we move the links to the Dow Partbooks to the individual pages, as I've done with the 5-part Lamentations. My thinking is as follows:

  • We don't usually note the sources on the composer page, unless it's absolutely necessary to distinguish two works with the same title and scoring (e.g. Byrd's 2 Salve Reginas from the 1591 Cantiones and the Gradualia).
  • The Dow partbooks are not unique sources for any of these works.
  • Although calligraphically very beautiful, they are not actually the most accurate sources - Baldwin's partbooks (Och. Mus. 979-83) are generally better.

I agree, Dave, and thanks for your scholarship in preparing such good editions! – Chucktalk Giffen 14:31, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
