O rosa bella
composer
author of text

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
O rosa bella is English, by a composer who hid his light under a bushel of alternative names: tantalizingly little is known about the life and career of John Bedyngham / Bodigham / Bellingun / Benigun / Boddenham. O rosa bella is a heartfelt lament from a young man who thinks he’s dying of love for an unattainable girl.
