[/fn]: A Fantasia[fn]Fantasie: “[…] when a musitian takes a point and wrests or turns it as he likes, making either much or little of it according as shall seem best in his own conceit […]. This kind will also bear any allowances whatsoever tolerable in other musick, except changing the air and leaving the key, which in fantasy may never be suffered.” Ackroyd, English Music 209.
