I've exaggerated: there are a number of differences, but I believe
the similarities outweigh them. Perhaps two different recercari based
on the same motif, sacred or otherwise?

Subject: [LUTE] Francesco or da Crema
I've just been playing through some recent da Crema recercars (Lutezine
Supp 123) and found No. 11 (p 37) remarkably similar to Francesco da
Milano's (Ness) No. 84 (Lute News 107 Supp). I believe the only
difference is barring and the last couple of measures.
Could someone more musicologically savvy than I put ears and eyes to
these and tell me whose compositions they are?
Thanks and regards,
