Odington, Walter

Odington, Walter, called Walter of Evesham, after a monastery in Worcestershire to which he belonged, lived in the reign of Henry VIII. He was a very learned ecclesiastic, and noted as an astronomer, mathematician, and musician, on each of which subjects he wrote treatisesn De Motibus Planetarum et de Mutatione Aeris is attributed to him; and Dr. Burney observes of his treatise entitled Of the Speculation of Music which is preserved in the library of Beie't College, Cambridge, if that if all other musical tracts, from the time of Boethius to Franco and John Cotton were lost, with this MS. our knowledge would not be much diminished."
