further information

Every psalm is set for five voices and has a tablature for viol and one for lute (or orpharion, as written in the title of the book). A performance with any combination of these voices and instruments might be intended. The viol tablature is underlayed to the treble voice, suggesting in particular a performance for voice and viol.

The book contains only 12 musical compositions, all the 50 psalms can be sung to these tunes, following a table at the end of the book.
