Pastedown cancel partly lifted on p. 234. Late 17th-century binding of brown leather over boards; upper and lower covers blind tooled with an ornamental panel, the interior of which is stained a lighter shade of brown. Bookplate 2. Mid 18th-century annotation on front flyleaf: 'A Book of services in Score by several hands belonging to Dean Aldrichs' Collection of Musick in the Archives'. 19th-century shelfmark: G 13.

Provenance: from the Aldrich bequest, listed in Archives 1717, position C3, as 'Mr Tallis' Services', qualified in Dowding (main hand) as 'Te Deum & Magnificat of Tallis, Dimittis of Bird. MS.'. In Mus. 1002 itself, the shelfmark 'C.3' is written in ink on the front flyleaf (replacing an earlier shelfmark, deleted and illegible).
