LYRA VIOL SOURCES

Tobias Hume
Details of Tobias Hume’s publications can be found on the Composers page.

Alfonso Ferrabosco II
Much of Ferrabosco’s considerable output is only found in manuscript sources. However in 1609 he released two publications, Ayres, a collection of songs with lute and bass viol accompaniment and:

“LESSONS FOR 1. 2. and 3. Viols. BY Alfonso Ferrabosco.
LONDON: Printed by THOMAS SNODHAM, for IOHN BROVVNE, and are to be sould at his shop in Saint Dunstones Church-yard in Fleetstreet”

A modern transcription of the work is available (Ferrabosco, 1973).
