Sarge Gerbode has computer-set the complete works of John Dowland - not just the lute solos but the songs and consort pieces (including all viol parts and an alternative tablature setting for archlute) - an incredible undertaking, especially as he is giving it all away for free. There are two file formats for the tablature, Fronimo (version 2 as well as version 3!) and Tab, as well as pdf. The viol parts are in score format with original clefs, in pdf format. And the whole lot can also be heard in midi...
