From the highest spire of contentment My fortune is thrown; And fear and grief and pain for my deserts, for my deserts Are my hopes, since hope is gone. The version in Thysius compiled? These musical details suggest very strongly that the Herold setting is also the work of Van den Hove, something which is further supported by the fact that many of the pieces located nearby in Herold are either ascribed to him or were included in Florida a year before Herold was copied from its exemplar.
There are some odd substitute chords in bar 9 antiqae bar but these, in all likelihood, result from a scribe attempting to make corrections when copying from an exemplar in which some of the bass notes have anhiquae positioned on the wrong strings, rather than representing a genuine harmonic innovation Example 4. If anttiquae I would look forward about a small reference to my efforts.
Since this source includes five pieces signed by Dowland and is thought to have belonged to a student of his, it seems plausible that this version antiauae be another of his own creation. This study has only scratched the surface of a large topic and would be hugely enhanced by similar research into the multitude of similarly-transmitted English pieces that were popular across late-sixteenth and early-seventeenth century Europe.

There are some exterior indications that there may be a connection between these two versions, since both are in G minor, are coupled with triple-time versions, and use the unusual formal scheme AAiBCBiCi.
A similar situation can be observed in some later lute settings, such as Stobaeus lachrijae as late as the s? Although this research was carried out within the context of a computer-assisted electronic corpus-building project the analysis of the musical material has been carried out entirely manually.
The problem of enforced registral displacement of the bass line between bars 13 and 14 of the G minor versions the low F is not available on a six-course lute is avoided in A minor settings Example 2although this key requires higher hand positions anyiquae and generally asks more difficult stretches of the player.

Even at this early stage, the melody of the English version is disappearing and the lachirmae is beginning to be treated as a chord sequenceserving as a basis for further elaboration.
These can be subdivided according to their tonality and warrant a brief summary. To give only a handful of examples, all four feature a substitute chord an inserted IV in bar 2 unseen in any English sources Example 7a.
Other composers have written pieces based on the work, including Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck Thomas Tomkins and Tobias Hume ‘s “What Greater Griefe”, [ citation needed ] while John Danyel ‘s “Eyes, look lacyrimae more” pays clear homage to the piece,  as does John Bennet ‘s ” Weep, o mine eyes “.

Besides the derivatives of the English G minor version that were in circulation on the Continent, there were a number of interesting lute settings with no apparent connection with surviving English sources.
The widespread dissemination of this piece is unsurprising for two reasons; firstly, Dowland travelled extensively as one of the most sought-after lute virtuosi of his age, holding various posts in Germany and Denmark and, secondly, the vogue for English dance music spread rapidly throughout the German-speaking courts of Northern Europe during the later years of antquae sixteenth century.
The G minor version, however, antiquwe slightly better, being both directly copied although, curiously, without the divisions so popular in England and used as the basis for further recomposition.

Simon Groot has recently shown that much of the music in this print is taken from printed sources either from England or with strong English connections, and has suggested that the cittern parts were produced either by Valerius or by someone within his circle, since they are derived from the vocal versions of the melodies.
Several perplexing unica serve to emphasise the incompleteness of the surviving picture, not least the fascinating F minor lute setting in Eyserttwhich, although tangential to the patterns of transmission identified in this paper, nevertheless seems to be a good, error-free version.
