Now in its third edition, the second of two volumes in a landmark collection of John Bull’s complete keyboard music contains dances, preludes and variation sets. Still essential reading in the canon of Bull scholarship, Thurston Dart’s Introduction to the first edition of 1963 is retained. Alan Brown’s new Note complements Dart’s insights with a detailed explanation of revisions to the volume made in the light of the latest research.
The List of Sources and Textual Commentary have been thoroughly revised, the latter including some extra variant readings that players may wish to consider. A new, second Appendix gives incipits of selected pieces or arrangements, anonymous in the sources, which have been proposed over the years as possibly Bull’s work.
