Mus. 1215(2)

Manuscript. [John Blow], canon 'No Lucinda I swear the temptations so sweet' for two voices and continuo. Autograph score, torn and incomplete at end; the remainder of this sheet is now Mus. 1188-9 (f. 18). English, late 17th century. The music has been copied on the reverse of a printed single-sheet folio:

Oblong format, 333 x 267 mm. Pasted into a paper wrapper within a modern card folder, and mounted impermanently on a cord within an early 20th-century folder of stiff card and vellum containing all 11 sections of Mus. 1215.
