The part-books are Decani Medius (i), Cantoris Contratenor (ii), Cantoris Tenor (iii) and Cantoris Bass (iv). The Cantoris Medius and the three other Decani books formerly belonging to the set are missing. The full anthems are at the reverse end of the books to the Verse anthems.

Shelfmark

MSS. Tenbury 1176-1182

Arrangement

Refrences to Organ Books can be explained thus: The front part of MS. Tenbury 1181 is paged continuously after MS. Tenbury 1180; hence 'org. 1' - 'org. 274' = MS. Tenbury 1180 and 'org. 275' onwards = MS. Tenbury 1181 (front part). Reversing MS. Tenbury 1181 is an independent pagination for Full Anthems, 'org. 1' etc. MS. Tenbury 1182 has both forward and reverse paginations: 'org. iiia' = forward pagination and 'org. iiib' = reverse pagination.

Custodial History

The part-books belonged formerly to W. Gostling, the owner of the Batten Organ Book (MS. Tenbury 791) and of other valuable collections; they passed later through the hands of Highmore Skeats, and of W. J. Porter in 1809. At that date Porter also owned the organ-books, and these belonged to Joseph Warren in 1864.
