  • Thomas Wode [Wood] (died 1592) was a Church of Scotland minister and musician. He compiled the St. Andrews Psalter (otherwise known as the Wode part-books) in 1562, beginning with over 100 psalm-settings by David Peebles. The manuscript includes:-- on folio 21v: Lachrimae / flow my tears;-- on folio 23v: Mistress mine may well you fare;-- on folio 48r: Like as the lark;-- on folio 48v: Come sweet love let sorrow cease;-- on folio 49r: About a bank;-- on folio 52v: For love of one I make my moan;-- on folio 55r: If care do cause men cry.Though there are two autograph copies of the sets of part-books, this is the only surviving fifth part.The other parts are in NLS and University Library Edinburgh, see Musica Brittanica XV (Music of Scotland 1500-1700), Kenneth Elliott, Musica scotica II: sixteenth-century Scots songs for voice & lute (Glasgow: University of Glasgow Music department Publications, 1997) pp 135-136; and see HM Shire Song dance and poetry at the court of Scotland under James VI.Note that there is another part-book in Georgetown University Library, see reference in John Purser, Scotland's music (Edinburgh: Mainstream, 1992) p 288.Please see the Manuscripts & Archives Research Library’s catalogue entry for the MS here:
