A scholarly edition of consort music by two Catholic composers, this volume contains an extensive introduction which includes information about the composers; an assessment of the sources; an account of centres of viol playing in 17th-C England; changing fashions in genre; new insights on mode, mensuration and barring, and temperament. The edition includes a reconstruction of a pavan by Philips, and the composition of outer parts for dances by Dering. All sources are described, and there is an extensive critical commentary. In terms of our understanding of metre, mode and tuning, the volume makes a contribution to editing practice more generally.
