One of John Adson's Courtly Masquing Ayres (1621), a publication containing 35 pieces originally intended for a wide range of instruments - “for violons (violins), consorts and cornets”. Adson was a member of the London Waits (1614-40) and a prominent theatre musician. In Cavendish's play The Country Captain (1631), when the drunk captain asks for music, a musician enquires: “Do you mean Master Adson's new ayres, sir?”
