 The eight songs in the present anthology come from the MS 2591 held in the Pepys Library, at Magdalene College, Cambridge. The manuscript is titled Songs & other Compositions Light, Grave, & Sacred, for a Single VoiceAdjusted to the particular Compass of mine; With a Thorough-Base on ye Ghitarr by Cesare Morelli and is bound with the inscription ‘MVSIC 1693’ on the cover: this appears to be the binding date of the book, for the compositions date from around 1680, with Morelli permanently leaving England in 1682. MS 2591 includes 51 songs for bass voice with guitar accompaniment, and a short guitar tutor with scales and exercises.
