Additional comments Oxford, Christ Church Mus 49 is a guardbook assembled from eight unrelated tracts. One of these tracts consists of seventeen Anglican chants (one double, the rest single) copied by William Turner c.1690. One of the single chants is by Henry Purcell (whether father or son is uncertain); the rest are by Turner himself. Chants transcribed by Jason Smart 2019; for the purpose of the index the original note values are combined into the regular pattern (semibreves and minims)
