Principally made for two Basse-Viols, yet so contrived, that it may be plaied 8. severall waies upon sundry Instruments with much facilitie.

  1. The first way or musicke is for one Basse-Viole to play alone in parts, which standeth alwaies on the right side of this Booke.
  2. The second musicke is for two Basse-viols to play together.
  3. The third musicke, for three Basse-Viols to play together.
  4. The fourth musicke, for two Tenor Viols and a Basse-Viole.
  5. The fift musicke, for two Lutes and a Basse-Viole.
  6. The sixt musicke, for two Orpherions and a Basse-Viole.
  7. The seventh musicke, to use the voyce to some of these musicks, but especially to the three Basse Viols, or to the two Orpherions with one Basse-Viole to play the ground.
  8. The eight and last musicke, is consorting all these instruments together with the Virginals, or rather with a winde Instrument and the voice.
