Navigation etc.

Presumably a madrigal, not a motet... only 5 voices in the 1612 version, but the same music (unless these are two different works that begin differently, and I have unknowingly hit on a famous Gibbons thing...) (Otherwise, not sure why this has a separate page, unless we've changed policy so that the Madrigals and Motets page is now only for scores of all the pieces in the collection; used to be that, except for famous groups of works like Op.18 nos.1-6 by Beethoven, the works got one page- Op.18 (or rather that's the exception)- but not individual pages to themselves as here.) - ES
