A new publication of the complete My Ladye Nevells Booke, an important source of William Byrd’s keyboard music, which is dated 1591. A peer-reviewed preface looks at the composer and manuscript and, by examining errors and emendations, comes to some surprising conclusions about the book’s genesis. Detailed notes on instrumentation and performance practice are provided, along with a substantial bibliography for those wishing to study this remarkable collection further. Included are full-colour plates of the manuscript.
The music is presented as a pseudo-facsimile by returning all the visual aspects of the manuscript. This includes black notation, original time signatures and clefs, and corrects the only other modern edition from 1923.
