Lachrimae seems to have had little influence on the subsequent development of consort music in England. If performed I would look forward about a small reference to my efforts.
However, the keyboard composers are able to exploit a contrapuntal dimension unavailable to Van den Hove and lutenist-composers in generalallowing them to make imitative interplay of paramount importance in their settings.
Unfortunately, such are the huge number of settings, derivatives and imitations it spawned that only a small sample can be fruitfully discussed here.
Lachrimae is typical of the Anglo-German consort repertory in that great prominence is given to pavans. Zum ersten geschah dies Anfang des Sir Henry Umpton’s Funeral George Whitehead his Almand First Pub lication. It is not always clear whether the many variants contained in this print arise from typesetting errors or constitute genuine attempts at recomposition.
There are some exterior indications that there may be a connection between these two versions, since both are in G minor, are coupled with triple-time versions, and use the unusual formal scheme AAiBCBiCi.

The undivided strains employ essentially the same structural pitches throughout, suggesting that they are derived from a common harmonic template.
There can be little doubt that the lute version is a second- perhaps third- generation derivative of the English G minor setting, being replete with printing errors bar 3 opens with an incorrect chord and recompositions the flourish from bar 2iii, or the ornamented sequential passage from bar 12yet clearly a close relative. In the dedication Dowland informed the Queen that it was written partly in her homeland: There are perhaps two main reasons for this, the most obvious of which is the size of its print-run; one thousand copies was immense for this period and the publishers presumably expected to sell every copy.
The two closely-related settings in this source were not committed to paper untiland thus might well represent a composite of a number of English and Continental versions known to Montbuysson. Besides the derivatives of the English G minor version that were in circulation on the Continent, there were a number of interesting lute settings with no apparent connection with surviving English sources.
Including the lute tablature and an alternate harpsichord part. In fact, there are no Continental lute versions in A minor at all; even the lute part to LoSTwhich constitutes a perfectly respectable solo setting in its own right, is not amongst those LoST parts reprinted by Van den Hove in his Delitiae Musice.
The version in Thysius compiled? However, one should take care not to assume that this is necessarily a successful intabulation of its model, nor that it is an intabulation of a good arrangement. Furthermore, close examination of the undivided strains reveals a greater similarity between the two versions than initially meets the eye laachrimae ear, although the divisions are largely unique.
