The three sources of this piece (the others are Herbert f.4v. and Dd.9.33 f.70v.) give very similar texts. In Add.3056 it is followed by a galliard with the text “Ga: to the pavan before” but the galliard is in D major and elsewhere (Dd.5.78.3 f.58) it is associated with a different pavan in D major which seems a more likely pairing. This pavan provides a classic example of Bacheler’s highly distinctive style of division writing. There are no grace signs in the source, but I have played quite a few where they seem to be called for, often on dotted notes or to decorate unisons.
