The Music School collection of printed and manuscript music was originally bequeathed to the University of Oxford by William Heather (c 1563-1627), and gradually added to until the end of the 18th century. The present items were probably given to the Music School by Henry Lawes; see Music & Letters, v. 48 (1967), p. 28.
