Edition notes: Ligature brackets and coloration brackets have been omitted to aid readability. Accidental appendancy has been interpreted as lasting the whole length of the clearly defined sections (marked by double bars in this edition) in most cases. The editor has preferred not to use B naturals in many cases, partly because of the more conservative sound-world of Cornysh senior who was more likely to have composed this than Cornysh junior. Note-values halved.
