From Byrd to Bing and Bridge

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

During the eighteenth century, when Byrd's reputation was at its nadir, William Hayes seemed to plagiarize the music of Byrd's "Emendemus in melius" for his anthem "Lord, how long". However, this apparent plagiarism might have been merely a misattribution to his father by his son Philip. The resulting contrafactum was recognised as a work by Byrd over a century later by Frederick Bridge. Also it emerges that the important Bing-Gosling Partbooks were owned by Philip Hayes from 1777 to 1797.
