Although it is by no means a certainty, there is circumstantial evidence to suggest that a G minor setting preserved in a number of English manuscript sources may have originally emanated from Dowland himself.
Like others of Dowland’s lute songs, the piece’s musical form and style are based on a dance, in this case the pavan. Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum ‘threshold of originality’ to qualify for copyright as an ‘adaptation’.

Unusually, the divisions on each strain of the pavan are reproduced with great consistency, the only exceptions being ML which has some added flourishes and which omits the divisions altogether.
The earliest sources for this setting are Dd. To single out just one instance, the highest pitch of the very first chord is carelessly omitted, thus ruining the famous descending tetrachord.

Instrumental versions by Dowland include “Lachrimae” for lute, ” Galliard to Lachrimae” for lute and “Lachrimae antiquae” for consort. The G minor version, however, fared slightly better, being both directly copied although, curiously, without the divisions so popular in England and used as the basis for further recomposition.
The aim of this study, then, is to collate as much of this material as possible and present some preliminary hypotheses regarding in particular the transmission of this piece across mainland Europe. These musical details suggest very strongly that the Herold setting is also the work of Van den Hove, something which is further supported by the fact that many of the pieces located nearby in Herold are either ascribed to him or were included in Florida a year before Herold was copied from its exemplar.
Simon Groot has recently shown that much of the music in this print is taken from printed sources either from England or with strong English connections, and has suggested that the cittern parts were produced either by Valerius or by someone within his circle, since they are derived from the vocal versions of the melodies. This study has only scratched the surface of a large topic and would be hugely enhanced by similar research into the multitude of similarly-transmitted English pieces that were popular across late-sixteenth and early-seventeenth century Europe.
Besides the derivatives of the English G minor version that were in circulation on the Continent, there were a number of interesting lute settings with no apparent connection with surviving English sources.
