Edition notes: Includes a keyboard reduction of the a cappella choral score. Please click on the link for preview/playback. Free registration at external website required for PDF download. Sometimes the waters of Helicon are quaffed by as many (sequentially) as the tap water of London is reputed to be. This edition relies heavily on Rimbault's 1847 revision of Samuel Arnold's "Cathedral Music", itself based upon items which William Boyce was unable to include in his own collection, which was, in its own turn, derived from items passed to him by Maurice Greene. Time willing, I hope to identify reliable earlier sources, and to eliminate anachronistic misreadings and "improvements". At which point this caveat will be suppressed.

Description: Little is known of Nathaniel Patrick that isn't derived from the title-page of his one printed work (now lost): "Songs of Sundrye Natures, whereof some are Divine, some are madrigalles and the rest psalms and hymns in Latin, by Nathaniel Patrick, sometyme Master of the Children of the Cathedral Church of Worcester and organist of the same" (1597). The small handful of consort songs that survive in manuscript are probably derived from this source.
