William Matthews query

I recall seeing the Matthews hymns for four voices last time I was looking at other music in the volume G.517.b. at the BL, and don't think the Matthews pieces had a title page - it might not even have specified on the music that it was by Matthews, which could be part of why it doesn't show up on the catalogue. It might be easiest to call up the volume by requesting another of the items that is bound into it, e.g. John Broderip's 'Psalms Hymns and Spiritual Songs', shelfmark G.517.b.(1.).

            Thanks for sorting this with them, Ros - it's better that the book is on the catalogue as usual. Edmund
