There is no rose

author of text

The fifteenth-century musical manuscript containing this jewel among early English carols is in the form of a vellum roll more than six feet long, also containing other carols and mass settings. It was presented to Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1838, and has been transcribed and published several times since then; its text is attractive enough in its own right to have been newly set to music by a number of composers, including Benjamin Britten in his Ceremony of Carols.
