Mus. 15 (ff. 44-89)
Manuscript. Vocal and instrumental music copied in keyboard score, and keyboard music, copied by Henry Aldrich; English, 1660s or later. The pages have been ruled with 6-lined staves specifically for keyboard notation. Works have been added both at the front of the volume (items 1-3) and at the rear with the volume inverted (items 4-9). Several pieces appear to derive from Mus. 47, which at some stage probably belonged to Aldrich.
Table of titles and composers in modern form. Display form found in manuscript.
