General information

Title: The Baldwin Partbooks

Compiler – Copyist: John Baldwin (ca. 1560-1615)

Publication date and place: ca. 1575 – 1581, manuscript at Christ Church, Oxford. – Manuscript

Description: These partbooks were copied and originally owned by John Baldwin (1560-1615). Baldwin was a singer in St George’s Chapel Windsor from 1575 to 1600, by which time he had transferred to the Chapel Royal. He was also a composer (including several pieces for viol consort and a song for Elizabeth I’s visit to the Earl of Hertford’s residence at Elvetham in 1591) and the copyist of several other extant music manuscripts from this period including his ‘Commonplace book’ (British Library: R.M.24.d.2) and ‘My Ladye Nevells Booke’ (British Library: MS Mus. 1591), containing much of William Byrd’s keyboard music. Baldwin’s partbooks are a major source for Tudor Church Music from not only the reign of Elizabeth (when Baldwin was copying), but also from earlier periods stretching back before the Reformation. Originally a set of six books each containing a different voice part, the tenor partbook is now missing.
