London, Great Britain, British Library, MS Royal Appendix 58

Provenance: Probably copied in London (Greene 1962). Apparently a commonplace book in which several professional musicians associated with English royal court entered useful pieces (Stevens 1961). Possibly owned later by Henry Fitzalan, 12th Earl of Arundel (d. 1580), whose library passed to his son-in-law, John, 6th Baron Lumley (d. 1609). Arundel-Lumley collection became part of Old Royal Library, which passed to newly founded British Museum in 1757.
