Royal 8 G. vii
Royal 8 G. vii is a manuscript now housed in the British Library, which contains four-voice music largely by French composers. Although the entire contents lack ascriptions to the relevant composers, many conjectural ascriptions can be supported e.g. by the presence of the work in question in another manuscript. Despite this, a large number of the contents still lack ascriptions and are, as yet, anonymous.
In the table below, the following key may be used to identify the composers:
- ?Name - The ascription is present, but for some reason doubted
- [Name] - The ascription is not present but can be confirmed, e.g. via a connection with another source
- ?[Name] - The ascription is not present and even the likeliest composer in question doubted
The manuscript seems to have come from the workshop of Alamire, and scholars have identified the manuscript as being partly by "Scribe C" (as labelled in Grove). The manuscript is said to have been put together in the years 1513-25.
Publication date and place: 1513 -1525 – Manuscript.
