In fact, there are no Continental lute versions in A minor at all; even the lute part to Lcahrimaewhich constitutes a perfectly respectable solo setting in its own right, is not amongst those LoST parts reprinted by Van den Hove in his Delitiae Musice. There can be little doubt that the lute version is a second- perhaps third- generation derivative of the English G minor setting, being replete with printing errors bar 3 opens with an incorrect chord and recompositions the flourish from bar 2iii, or the ornamented sequential passage from bar 12yet clearly a close relative.

Example 6 The somewhat intriguing rubric attached to this piece seems to suggest that it is an intabulation of a lost consort setting, something which is further supported by the fact that a point of melodic imitation disappears from the texture during bars The two closely-related settings in this source were not committed to paper untiland thus might well represent a composite of a number of English and Continental versions known to Montbuysson.

However, by the time Van den Hove added another setting to the Schele lutebook dated 16th Februaryhe had obviously experimented with other models, since the unorthodox AAiBCBiCi layout has been replaced with a more conventional AAiBBiCCi and the contrapuntal template differs somewhat.
