A Note Concerning Sources

The principal text source for the edition is the 1513 Sarum missal printed by B. Rembolt (Paris).  Dickinson (Appendix 1) gives a list of 63 printed Sarum Missals spanning the years 1487-1557, none of which appears to be supremely authoritative.  (This list in itself is now known to be incomplete. It omits, for example, the edition printed in Basle in 1489 by M. Wennsler, of which a copy is preserved in the Bodleian Library. ) Amongst the four mIssals that were printed in the largest size, 11 by 7 inches, 1513 was chosen for its generous font size and clear impression and excellent state of preservation (in the British Museum copy).

The secondary text source is the edition by Francis Henry Dickinson, mentioned above, printed at Burntisland by Pitsligo, 1861-1883.  This edition is of particular importance because of the extensive annotations that detail variants to be found amongst the printed Sarum missals.  All the annotations found in the Dickinson edition have been incorporated into the notes of the present edition.

Supporting texts include the following representative Sarum missals:
The 1497 Morin edition from Rouen, an early print representing Dickinson’s ‘A’ stream of texts.
The 1500 Pynson edition from London, representing Dickinson’s ‘B’ stream.
The 1526 Regnault edition from Paris, representing Dickinson’s ‘D-3’ stream.
J. Wickham Legg., ed. The Sarum Missal Edited from Three Early Manuscripts (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1916.

The principal music source is the Graduale Sarisburiense (ed. Frere) comprising elements from the following four manuscripts:
BL Ms. Add. 12,194.
BL Ms. Add. 17,001.
Bodl. Ms. Rawl. Liturg. d. 3.
BL Ms. Lansd. 462.

In addition to this list is the Sarum Graduale printed in Paris in 1508, of which a single copy exists, in the Huntingdon Library, San Francisco.

The secondary music sources are
Rylands-24, a noted Sarum Missal of the 13th century.
The printed Sarum Graduals of 1527 and 1532.
