3. Constantijn Huygens’s son Lodewijck heard Benjamin and John Rogers play harpsichord and lute in a consort of music by Benjamin together with a bass viol (perhaps played by the organist Christopher Gibbons, who was also present) and the violinist Davis Mell at the latter’s house in London in March 1652; see A.

14. I am inclined to be very cautious about the pieces credited to ‘dafo’ in the lutebook of the Scottish lady, Margaret Wemyss; there are no concordances with reliably-ascribed Dufault pieces among them, and two have concordances with music by other lutenists (see CNRS Dufault edition, p. XL, ‘Pièces d’attribution douteuse’).

24. The manuscript, which was burnt in World War II, and is only known from a microfilm copy held at the same library, bore the ownership signature of Johann Peter Roth and is said to have been dated 1653, although the date cannot be verified from the microfilm. (See C. Meyer, Sources manuscrites en tablature: Luth et théorbe (c.1500-c.1800) Catalogue descriptif, ii (Baden-Baden & Bouxwiller: Koerner, 1994), pp. 73-76.)

25. Brussels II 276, f. 3, [Sarabande], which appears in five mid-17th-century sources without composer attribution; it is very similar to an anonymous sarabande in Kremsmünster MS L81, f. 43v, and another sarabande attributed to ‘Mons. J. Hear’ (? presumably Jean Héart, 1592-c1649) in Berlin MS 40068, ff. 50v-51. A complete list is given in R. Spencer, ed., Livre de luth d’Albrecht Werl (Geneva: Minkoff, 1990), p. 34, no. 20. Note that these correspondences do not absolutely rule out Dufault’s possible authorship.

28. Private communication, May 1998. I should like to express my gratitude to M. Goy for his help and encouragement in the preparation of this paper, which was partly inspired by his paper, ‘Les luthistes français dans les sources germaniques’ (unpublished), read at the S.L. Weiss Congress, Freiburg, September 1992.

29. As an obvious example, Robert de Visée quotes in this way from Jacques Gallot’s allemande ‘Les plaintes de Psyché’ (CNRS Gallot edition, no. 99) in his own ‘Tombeau du Vieux Gallot’ (Besançon, Saizenay MS I, p. 55; R. de Visée, Pièces de théorbe et de luth (Paris, 1716/R Madrid, 1983), p. 33, ‘Allemande’.) I have been unable to detect any such quotation in Du Pré’s tombeau for Dufault (Paris, Milleran MS, ff. 15v-16; Kremsmünster L79, ff. 104v-105).

44. Again credit should go to François-Pierre Goy for the recognition of these by no means obvious Dufault arrangements. The two versions (in different keys and metres) may derive from two distinct tablature settings; there seem to be some similarities between the guitar arrangement given here (music example 8c) and the D major violin version (8d).
