Manuscript. Anthems and contrafacta for unaccompanied choir, copied by Charles Husbands Jr; English, c. 1690. Partner to Mus. 12, which contains similar works for accompanied choir. An image of Mus. 11, p. 44 (= f. 23r) can be viewed here.
Aldrich's Palestrina adaptations in this volume probably ultimately derive from his printed copy of Palestrina's Festorum totius anni cum communi sanctorum quaternis vocibus (Rome, 1622), which is bound into Mus. 887-92.

Upright format, 370 x 245 mm. 94 folios; of these ff. 1v-36v have been paginated '1-71' by Husbands. Pencil folio numbers for ff. 1-36 were added in October 2003, and will not be present in microfilms made before that date; the remaining leaves are unfoliated. Unused ruled staves on ff. 19r-v (= pp. [36-7]), and from f.  to the end. Collation is largely unclear on account of the tightness of the binding, but was probably originally in regular gatherings each of two nested bifolios, with some leaves pasted together or excised. Late 17th-century binding of dark brown leather over boards, gold-tooled with fillets and corner ornaments; on the spine, an inset of red leather, tooled in gold: 'FULL ANTHEMS IN SCORE'. Index of contents on front flyleaf iii by Havergal, who has also annotated the musical contents with pencil comments and attributions, some of them spurious. Bookplate 2. 19th-century shelfmark: H.1.11.
Provenance: from the Aldrich bequest. The earliest catalogue entry for this volume is by Hind in Dowding, where it is listed at position P10 as 'Full anthems in Score'; in Mus. 11 itself, the shelfmark 'P.10' is written in Hind's handwriting on front flyleaf i. In itself, Hind's entry cannot be taken as proof of Aldrich provenance; however, the partner volume, Mus. 12 (q.v.), is more securely linked with the Aldrich bequest. During the 18th century the two volumes were shelved apart from one another; by the early 19th century they had been reunited, at shelf-positions H.1.11-12.
