Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
A courtly partsong from the Fayrfax Manuscript, which contains many fine works in this genre together with carols devotional and satirical, by composers associated with the court of Henry VII. The whiteness and purity of the lady described in the text are aptly mirrored in the music.
