Mus. 1188-9 (f. 16)

Manuscript. Fragment of an unidentified verse anthem (beginning '-justly & will not behold the majesty of the Lord'), copied by Henry Aldrich, and almost certainly a sketch or composing score by him. English, late 17th century. On the verso, two staves of an unidentified textless bass part, in an unidentified hand.

Upright format, 375 x 220 mm. Single sheet, pasted to a guard. No early bookplate. Now bound within Mus. 1188-9, an early 20th-century guardbook of stiff card and vellum.

Provenance unknown. Not recorded in any Christ Church catalogue until Havergal Summary, where it is listed among the Portfolios at position I.2.γ under the general heading of '14 Anonymous anthems, mostly separate, with fragments of others, & 3 services in parts. MS'; in Mus. 1188-9 (f. 16) itself, the portfolio reference 'I.2.γ' is written in red crayon at the top of f. 16r.
