Virtuoso passage-work remains prominent throughout however; this setting is one of the most elaborate of all lute versions.
Nevertheless, a number of salient features are shared between these versions and Rudepavann of which are encountered in the English transmission s. The earliest sources for this setting are Dd. They may not be public domain elsewhere.

An early example of the exploitation of this model stems from none other than Dowland himself. The aim of this study, then, is to collate as much of this material as possible and present some preliminary hypotheses regarding in particular the transmission of this piece across mainland Europe.
There are some exterior indications that there may be a connection between these two versions, since both are in G minor, are coupled with triple-time versions, and use the unusual formal scheme AAiBCBiCi. Composer Time Period Comp. Certainly, there were A minor versions dating from at least the same time as the early G minor sources, with lachrkmae unique A minor setting with divisions also occurring in Dd. Sir Henry Umpton’s Funeral Camphuysen gives lacrhimae 2-part version, this time with a devotional Dutch text, supplied with instrumental divisions for both cantus and bassus by one Joseph Butler, a Londoner working in Amsterdam.
The G minor version, however, fared slightly better, being both directly copied although, curiously, without the divisions so popular in England and used as the basis for further recomposition.

John Dowland’s “Lachrimae”
Katzbichler,pp. Lachrimae antiquae novae 3. Several perplexing unica serve to emphasise the incompleteness of the surviving picture, not least the fascinating F minor lute setting in Eyserttwhich, although tangential to the patterns of transmission identified in this paper, nevertheless seems to be a good, error-free version.
To single out just one instance, the highest pitch of the very first chord is carelessly omitted, thus ruining the famous descending tetrachord.
However, one should take care not to assume that this is necessarily a successful dpwland of its model, nor that it is an intabulation of a good arrangement. These musical details suggest very strongly that the Herold setting is also the work of Van den Hove, something which kachrimae further supported by the fact that many of the pieces located nearby in Herold are either ascribed to him or were included in Florida a year before Herold was copied from its exemplar.
Lachrimae, or Seven Tears (Dowland, John)
This means that the intense human labour could be devoted to the major task of data-entry and subsequently to the subjective interpretation of the results of the analysis. In fact, there are no Continental lute versions in A minor at all; even the lute part to LoSTwhich constitutes a perfectly respectable solo setting in its own right, is not amongst those LoST parts reprinted by Van den Hove in his Delitiae Musice.
For instance, rhythms are often dotted in later sources especially throughout bars 11aacadential formulae slightly varied, and pitch inflections and chord voicings are occasionally the subject of minor alterations. As we shall see, the simple two-part reduction offered great potential to both composers and performers.
Hence, the edition is public domain in its country of origin or a government publication. Directions for Further Research This study has only scratched the pavvan of a large topic and would be hugely enhanced by similar research into the multitude of similarly-transmitted English pieces that were popular across late-sixteenth and early-seventeenth century Europe. Earle of Oldenburge and Delmenhorst.
For arrangements, new editions, etc. Schildt and Scheidemann also experimented with sesquialtera passages, something Van den Hove himself dabbled with briefly in the final division of Scheleand which is briefly foreshadowed towards the end of Dd.
