NOTE: Of the two editions of the cittern partbooks of Consort Lessons, only the 1599 edition survives. Based on the other surviving partbooks from 1611, the 1611 cittern partbook probably contained two additional pieces, Responce Pavin and The Bachiler's Delight. Both of the latter pieces can be found in the Mills College library cittern MS (the so-called Walsingham partbook).
