APPENDIX III
THE 'MUSICAL SCRAP'

THE loose slip of paper, now bound between folios 66 and 68 of the manuscript, has been called the 'musical scrap' for reference purposes. The contents reveal Whythorne in his old age writing down the names of 'Doktorz and Bachelarz of Miuzik in England', first those 'of aunsient tẏm', and on the reverse side, those 'of lạt tẏm'. Two simple pen ornaments suggest that the 'aunsient tẏm' side is intended to be read first.

The subject of Degrees of Musicians was a favourite with Whythorne, as the passage on pp. 232-3 reveals. Perhaps he jotted down these notes to serve as illustrations to this thesis. His action can be dated some time after July 1592, because of the events that he mentions in connexion with John Bull, Thomas Morley, and Giles Farnaby, to be discussed later. But now for Whythorne's 'musical scrap'.
