Do you know what these two pictures have in common?

.

Early music fans on the internet think they are both portraits of Thomas Morley, the English composer (1557/1558 – 1602).

The Lebrecht Music & Arts early music specialist has identifed the first image as one of his contemporaries, John Bull (1562/1563 – 1628), and the second as a drawing from around 1600 with the costume indicating an Italian, rather than an English, source.

Write to the Lebrecht Music & Arts Blog with any other musical misnomers that you have found on the internet.
