Thomas Ford's collection Musicke of Sundrie Kindes (London, 1607) is one of the first published sources explicitly calling for lyra viol. In these duets, Ford displays great fluency and inventiveness, which influenced the development of the lyra viol idiom. This edition collates the musical text against several extant secondary sources. The edition supplies a modern grand-staff score as well as a separate tablature score, both with regular barlines. In addition to the critical notes and the biographical data on the composer, the editor also discusses important issues for lyra viol performance.
