SECTION III.— CATCHES.
Under this heading Rounds are also included.



Harley 978, f. lib.

Vellum ; after 1226 (obit of Abbot Symon, f. 16). Octavo. The same part of
the MS. also contains a sort of Miracle-Play (vol. i, p. 242), Motets (p. 253), sacred
Songs (p. 423) ; see also under Solfeggi (below), and under Harmony and Treatises
(in vol. iii).

" Rota " or Round, written in long lines with plain blue or red
initials, at Reading Abbey (see Calendar, ff. 15b, 16). Under the
English words, " Svmer is icumen in," are written Latin words beg.
" Perspice, Christicola." The following instructions are given in the
original hand : " Hanc rotam cantare possunt quatuor socii. A
paucioribus autem quara a tribus vel saltern duobus non debet dici,
preter eos qui dicunt pedem. Canitur autem sic. Tacentibus ceteris,
unus inchoat cum hiis qui tenent pedem. Et cum uenerit ad primam
notam post crucem, inchoat alius ; et sic de ceteris. Singuli uero
repausent ad pausaciones scriptas et non alibi spacio unius longe note."
After this follows the " Pes " or ground-bass referred to above, written
in 2 parts, in score, and accompanied by instructions where to make
the necessary pauses in singing.

The notes are square or diamond-shaped, written on a stave of
5 red lines, with the C B[7 signature, and with quasi-bars. Some of
them have been altered, especially in the fourth stave, apparently in a
contemporary hand.

Among some poems of Walter Map which occur elsewhere in the
MS. in a late 13th centuxy hand is one, apparently by that author
(f. 85, col. 1, 1. 6), in which the late William Chappell has discovered
a punning allusion to "rotunde" or rounds, showing that form of
music to have been popular in England many years before this MS.
was written.
